Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »

Some people cry the blues, I never could
I had no time for tears, life was too good
I had the brightest smile in town, oh yeah
Till you came along, and you turned it upside down.

Everything went my way, life was a ball
But then you came along and changed it all
You took the brightest smile in town,
Yeah you took it baby, and you turned it upside down

You brought me love, oh tender love
That made my whole world glow
And then you took it all away
Just why, I'll never know

I'll soon forget in time, And smile again
But I can never smile as I did then
You took the brightest smile in town, oh Yeah
You took it baby, and you turned it upside down

Baby, whoa, yeah baby, you turned it upside down.
