Let's Go Get Stoned....Damn I LOVE Ray Charles....
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 07:23 PM by jus_the_facts
Let's go get stoned
Let's go get stoned
When your baby won't let you in
Got a few pennies, a bottle of gin
Just call your buddy on the telephone
Let's go get stoned

Let's go get stoned
Let's go get stoned
When you work so hard all the day long
And everything you do seems to go wrong
Just drop by my place on your way home

:loveya:

8. It's a great album with one glaring ommision
Rainy Night in Georgia is not on it!!! I realize he didn't write the song, but he OWNS that song! Have you ever heard Brooke Benton's version? Neither have I.

Ray was the greatest. I will always regret that I never saw him live.

9. I gotta agree...another omission is 'Mess Around'....
...but again I need to get several more o'his greatest hits...there were so many...pure genius he was...one song I cry everytime I hear it now is 'Seven Spanish Angels' with Willie Nelson as it was one of my Dad's favorites and now that he's gone too it rips my heart out! :hi:

10. I just got that song the other day
I love both Willie and Ray, but I can't enjoy that song because frankly, Willie can barely hang with Ray on his BEST day, and he sounds like he knew he was outclassed. It's no shame on him that he's not Ray Charles, but I just can't dig Willie when I'm hearing Ray.

I've been listening to Willie's Teatro album lately. Especially 'I Never Cared For You,' and his love song to a joint, 'I'll Take You With Me Everywhere I Go.' Good stuff. I listened to some samples of his recent reggae stuff, but I'm undecided on that yet. It seems a bit pedestrian.

6. Jamie Foxx was UNREAL
I couldn't believe how he INHABITED that role! I KNEW he deserved all the praise he got.

The movie showed Ray's dark side as well... which is proper, because he was human after all. My sister once encountered him in the St. Louis airport back in '94, and was appalled at how abusive he was with his staff. :-(

But geniuses are not often easy people to deal with. Shit, look at what I have to put up with! ;-)

7. LOL....
....I get the same thing all the time! :evilgrin:

He was definitely a genius...and Jamie is too for not only that role but he's a funny mofo to boot...The Great White Hope comes to mind..."yeah man...you know a *Broham*!" :D

11. EVERYBODY Must get Stoned
Well, they'll stone ya when you're trying to be so good,
They'll stone ya just a-like they said they would.
They'll stone ya when you're tryin' to go home.
Then they'll stone ya when you're there all alone.
But I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

Well, they'll stone ya when you're walkin' 'long the street.
They'll stone ya when you're tryin' to keep your seat.
They'll stone ya when you're walkin' on the floor.
They'll stone ya when you're walkin' to the door.
But I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

They'll stone ya when you're at the breakfast table.
They'll stone ya when you are young and able.
They'll stone ya when you're tryin' to make a buck.
They'll stone ya and then they'll say, "good luck."
Tell ya what, I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

Well, they'll stone you and say that it's the end.
Then they'll stone you and then they'll come back again.
They'll stone you when you're riding in your car.
They'll stone you when you're playing your guitar.
Yes, but I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.

Well, they'll stone you when you walk all alone.
They'll stone you when you are walking home.
They'll stone you and then say you are brave.
They'll stone you when you are set down in your grave.
But I would not feel so all alone,
Everybody must get stoned.
