Soul Fixin'

Seal Sings Otis 
The music video for Seal's 'I've Been Loving You Too Long' has hit the net. Seal's latest album, Soul, consists of covers of soul classics including this Otis Redding tune. While Seal is no match for the gritty soul of Otis Redding, he is able to do the song justice with a refreshing sound that doesn't stray too far from the original. The video, simple and direct, captures Seal lighting a match and venturing into a dark lonely basement where he sings his heart out.
