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 »

I've often been told that time bring 'bout a change
I've often been told that time bring 'bout a change
Yes, I've had two years of torture and my heart still feel the same

I had a real fine woman, fine as she could be
Let me tell ya, I had a real, real fine woman, fine as she could be
But the syndicators, back-biters stole that little girl away from me

Two years of being without her, seven hundred and thirty days
And I still remember her little brown body and the sweet love, baby way

Two years of torture and I'm still in misery
Oh, but I'm doomed as a lover unless she come back to me
