“I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” (sometimes issued as “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)”) is a song written by Otis Redding and Jerry Butler. It appeared as the A-side of a 1965 hit single by Otis Redding – and subsequently appeared on his third album, Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul. The B-side of the single “Just One More Day,” was also a minor hit, reaching #15 on the R&B and #85 on the pop singles charts. The song is ranked #110 on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The first cover of the song was a recording by The Rolling Stones in 1965—shortly after Redding’s original version became a hit. It was included on the Stones’ first live album, Got Live if You Want It!, but was overdubbed with screaming girls. Redding’s profile among white audiences-especially in Europe – was considerably advanced by the exposure given to one of his compositions by the Stones. Returning the compliment, Otis Redding covered the Rolling Stones song “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”, written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Document : di copy dari wiki aja …
