Listening Post

One of the most passionate, desperate, balls-out powerful love songs ever written -- and if this mind-blowing live performance of it doesn't give you chills, you have no heart.

Here's the great Otis Redding, live from the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, doing I've Been Loving You Too Long.

And as a bonus, here's Cat Power's gorgeous, torch song-ish cover of it.

Great live performance. I love Otis Redding, but my hands down favorite song is These Arms of Mine.
