Song of the Day: 'Try a Little Tenderness' by Otis Redding

There's not a Generation X-er who can hear this song without thinking of Jon Cryer's Duckie Dale from "Pretty in Pink," a classic role he reprised on "The Late Late Show with James Corden."

I lost patience with John Hughes movies for a while in the 80s, and informally boycotted Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles. So, I get no "feels" or nostalgia pangs for them. Still haven't seen this one, though I've seen Sixteen Candles once (and every other time I've caught a snippet, it's always been a scene with Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald in a convertible, for some reason).

Now, I wish I'd seen them both at the time, because I don't know what my issue even was any more, and I have gaps in my pop culture history!
