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 »

Dark day people
I know things will come my way
Some day people
I know things will come my way

But as of now it seems
To live it just don't pay

My body is made of heartaches
Blues is my middle name
My heart is made of heartaches
Blues is my middle name

Makes no difference how hard I try
I'm mistreated just the same

Everyone?s against me
I don't care where I go
Yes, everyone forgets poor me
I don't care where I go

But I feel that someday, somehow
Hard luck will leave me I know
