#2. “Try a Little Tenderness”: Otis Redding Stole It From White People
On Otis Redding “stealing” this from white people: “…Later covers would also be performed by Mel Torme, Frank Sinatra and even Rod Stewart. In short, the whitest white people possible have sang this song for nearly a century.”
Holy shit. Turns out “Try a Little Tenderness” was a lot like a Kardashian: It’s only really happy with some black in it.
