In 1967, Otis Redding and Arthur Conley wrote a song. They took the intro from the soundtrack of The Magnificent Seven. Furthermore, the song was based on Yeah Man from Sam Cooke. They did not get away with using the melody: the business partner of Sam Cooke got them to put the name of Sam Cooke in the credits and Otis Redding recorded several songs on his label. However, the melodies put together with some mentions of soul legends like Sam & Dave and Wilson Pickett made a song which hit the chart on number 2 in the US. Enjoy
