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 »

Well, I've been lonesome
I've been empty
I got an aching
Way deep down inside
And I need someone
Someone to hold me
Pull down the shade
Turn out the light
And love me tonight

Don't think about tomorrow
It don't matter anymore
We can turn the key
And lock the world outside the door
I need you so now
Come on, let go now
Kick off your shoes
Turn out the light
And love me tonight

Well, don't you worry
We're all alone now
So let your hair down
Come sit by my side
And turn off the TV
Put on some music
Pull down the shade
Turn out the light
And love me tonight

Don't think about tomorrow
It don't matter anymore
We can turn the key
And lock the world outside the door
I need you so now
Come on, let go now
Kick off your shoes
Turn out the light
And love me tonight

I need you so now
Come on, let go now
Pull down the shade
Turn out the light
And love me tonight
