    Note that this perfect piece of music is actually called 'Change Gonna Come' (3 words only).

    An absolutely perfect song. Comparing it to the Sam Cooke version; both are great but Otis' style is just so defining and emotional that it really digs into your soul and pulls your heart strings when he's screaming, his passion is outstanding.

    I don't know, this version just doesn't do it for me... Sam Cooke > Aretha Franklin >>>>> Otis Redding - when it comes to this song.

    As much as I like Sam Cooke's version, this one has the edge for me...the emotion in Otis' voice, man. Wow.
