Georgia On My Mind | Georgia Public Broadcasting
Some one must have had a ahaaaah haaaa moment when they finally made Georgia On My Mind the state song!!!!!!!!!!!!! May god continue to bless your families. The song will definitely make you tarry as you browse the website. Here's to Ray Charles! Ray Charles, may he rest in peace. Hoagy Carmichael wrote the music and Stuart Gorrell the lyrics in You should correct your info.
Steve Winwood modelled his vocals on Ray Charles and the R C version of Georgia On My Mind inspired him to sing in that way, to the point where a lot of people, especially in America thought Winwood was black. If there is one prime example of matching up to Ray Charles's version, it's the Spencer Davis Group version. Steve Winwood gave excellent tribute to a legend at the time and since then is now a legend himself. Black Blues singers more than made a mark on musics history, right back to people like Robert Johnson and Blind Blake and as in the prime case of Ray Charles, their legacy and influence should never be forgotten.
Thank God for both. Hoagy Carmichael also wrote the music to 'Stardust' - one of the great songs of the first half of the 20th Century. Hoagy Carmichael wrote a great song and Ray Charles made it his. P you too love you ray 1 and always will be.
We apologize for the inconvenience...
Georgia on my mind was writen by someone else, but Ray Chales had given life to this song and it will never be forgoten in this world. Thanks ray i have to give it to you on that one you put your mind in to it.

A sad story of black people. This song is universal and has nothing to do with whether you're black brown purple or green.

I don't even see where one would conclude that sentiment from the lyrics. Maybe there is a language barrier as I see you are from France? I just love it! But I like to think of it being a person: No wanna be American Idol could come close to RC. Study up on music before you let bullshit fall out if your mouth like that. That thinks they can even come close to singing this song with the soul, and feeling that ray did is delusional. Ray Charles was a great man, wonderful musician, and loving father, don't butcher his songs with your unfit voice.
Hogie did it first. The jazz band at my school played it and it is amazing. I personally love the Gerald Albright version on the saxophone But I think Willie Nelsons version is better. This was my childhood right here! I love the violins They all speak life. Its indeed a masterpiece. It heals d heart and help one go through difficult time Am a Nigerian and a fan of Ray Charlesl
