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 »

Reading old magazines,
I'm on the road no one to save me girl,
I wish you were here tonight,
There's a knock on my door,
Yes, it's time to give another show,
I wish you were here tonight.

Chorus

My love is all imagination,
Just a dream without you to make it real,
And, baby, I got a dream,
Burning inside,
No one else around,
Just you and I,
Loving in the fire,
It made us so right,
And I wish you were here tonight.

The T.V is a friend,
'cause I can choose the show with a happy end,
That never ends,
Forever and ever more,
If I make believe your on the show,
Your the lover that says she has to go,
And I end up wishing you were here tonight.

Chorus
