NOTE: Today is the 45th anniversary of the release of “Sittin’ On the Bay” by Otis Redding, less than a month after the soul great tragically died in a plane crash in Wisconsin. The song went on to reach the top of the Billboard pop singles chart just a few months later, where it stayed at #1 for four consecutive weeks.
