Otis Redding's ''(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay'' is probably the musician's best known song, but people in his hometown of Macon, Georgia are fond of another tune, ''Dreams to Remember.''

The city named a trolley car "Dreams" after the song. Redding's widow, Zelma, who co-wrote the song, attended the dedication outside the Otis Redding Foundation.

The event was held on Monday, which would have been Redding's 72nd birthday. Redding's children were also there, according to macon.com.
