Tuesday's Southern-style Tunes

Yesterday's "Who Am I?" was none other than Ray Charles. I asked about favorite songs from Mr. Charles's repertoire, and "Georgia on My Mind" was among the top, whether posted at my Facebook page or here on the blog. So I thought I'd post two tunes today: 1) My personal favorite Ray Charles number (even though I'm from Georgia, it's not "Georgia..." but one of the first songs I remember jitterbugging to.






2nd song ... just for you ... Georgia On My Mind ...

    Just wanted to say Georgia On My Mind will always remind me of those oh, so wonderful Designing Women!!!! :)

  2. I love Designing Women ... but when Ray Charles sang the opening, Suzanne and Charlene were gone and the whole thing had gone belly up as far as I was concerned.

  3. Yes, that's pretty much true for me too, but the song is still forever theirs in my head. :)
    Each of those four women have starred so many times in my mind as characters in books I read....including yours. :)
