Georgia On My Mind – Song Of The Day

Ray Charles

Written by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell, “Georgia On My Mind” may have been made even more iconic than it already was by Ray Charles but it, in fact, dates back to 1930, when it was recorded by Bix Beiderbecke. Just about everybody covered it since but it’s not until Ray Charles’ version that the song really became a major hit. It even became Georgia’s official state song eventually.

One of Charles’ most memorable classics and just a fantastic song altogether.
