Although Otis Redding has basically owned the song since 1966, the history of "Try A Little Tenderness" begins more than three decades earlier as a much more staid love song composed by a trio of professional songwriters. But it quickly became a go-to song for other performers, and in the many years since, it's been reinterpreted by everyone from Bing Crosby to Three Dog Night. So it's only natural that Peter Bjorn And John join the tradition in our little round room while touring to support their latest album, Gimme Some. How will three white guys from Sweden handle one of the staple songs of American soul music? Take a look.
