Tear Jerker: Ray Charles

This versatile singer and musician has some very moving songs.

  • "I Can't Stop Loving You" by Ray Charles.
    "They say that time heals a broken heart
    But time has stood still since we've been apart..."
  • "Georgia on My Mind".
  • "Drown In My Own Tears".
  • "A Fool For You".
  • "You Don't Know Me".
  • His rendition of "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye". The lyrics themselves were already bad enough....
    "Ev'ry time
    We say goodbye
    I wonder why a little
    Why the Gods above me
    Who must be in the know
    Think so little of me
    They allow you to go...."
  • Real Life example: He saw his brother drown in a bathtub when he was only four. (This was a year before he started to go blind.)
