2021 Song Draft- Round 10 Pick 10- Cincinnati Babyhead selects- ‘[Sittin’ On] The Dock Of The Bay’- Otis Redding.

Hearing ‘Dock of the Bay’ is like seeing an old friend.  Feels good.

Cincinnati Babyhead loved it the first time he heard it and he loves it more today.  Better every time he hears it and he’s heard it a lot.

Otis’ voice is the best. What can you say.

“Looks like nothing’s gonna change, everything still remains the same, I can’t do what ten people tell me to do, so I guess I’ll remain the same”, yes.

When he sings that verse CB is gonesville and then he finishes the song whistling.  Too much!

Perfection!!

If Babyhead ever runs into a Genie, one wish will be “To sing like Otis Redding”.

“I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay wastin’ time…”

Otis, CB loves ya!

(Thanks Hans for putting this together and thanks to everyone for sharing their love of music. Later. CB)

  1. This is one I don’t get tired of either…it’s always fresh. It’s a lot of fun to play also. Great way to close it out CB…when you meet the Genie…asked him or her for me to play like John Entwistle… if you have some wishes to spare.

  2. Awesome pick CB. As others have already stated, this is one of the greatest songs of all time. Every time I hear it, I’m taken back to a lighthearted moment that occurred in my 8th grade music class, shortly after Otis’ tragic death. During a particularly boring lesson on some arcane music none of us cared about, a kid in the class yelled out “bring back Otis Redding!” Everyone laughed, including the teacher.

  3. Great pick, CB, absolutely love that song! Such a shame we lost Otis Redding so early – yet another music artist who perished in a plane crash!

    It’s also crazy that “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” was released after Redding’s death and became his only no. 1 hit in the U.S.
