Otis Redding – (Sittin’ on) The dock of the bay
I got there!!
It feels right to have begun with Curtis Mayfield and ended up with Otis Redding. Two soul icons and heroes of mine to bookend my meanering year in youtube. This is fitting as it is with soul music that my musical infatuation began in earnest. I am equally glad that there was much variety in the music in between.
Thanks very much for coming on the journey with me. I hope you all have a great new year’s and that 2012 treats you well.
I intend to continue with the blog into next year but I may be slightly less rigorous about posting a new artist everyday (the research involved began to take it’s toll!). I will try some different things and see how they go. Look out for a few things over the coming days that I have been working on, such as my top 30 songs of the year.
