It is Thursday! As usual I take you on a trip down musical memory lane. Today I focus on Georgia On My Mind by Ray Charles. The reason why I chose this song is because I am going home on Monday (yeah, I’m not from Georgia, I’m South African) so a song about home is fitting, right? Here we go.
The song was recorded in 1960 and became the official song of the state of Georgia in 1979. The song has been covered by many artists such as Micheal Bolton, Ella Fitzgerald, John Mayer, Usher nad many more.
My favourite lines from the song…
Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you
Here is a video of the song. Enjoy!
