Best Ray Charles Songs

The Top Ten
1 Hit the Road Jack Hit the Road Jack Cover Art

Has one of the most catchy melodies and tells interesting story... In the end, isn't that what makes a good song?

Soul at its best by the great ray Charles

I think that is really good

The best song... Hit the road jack

2 Georgia on My Mind Georgia on My Mind Cover Art

This song bleeds my heart... Simply the best... This is the song that made me listen the whole album...No peace I find Georgia... Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind...

Classic spin on a classic song. His passion and musicality is clearly heard through the arrangement. Would also recommend the version honoring his by Willie Nelson and Wynton Marsalis

The song sounds very beautiful

It's the Ray Charles song

3 What'd I Say, Pts. I & 2 What'd I Say, Pts. I & 2 Cover Art

I love Hit the Road and Georgia but it's a sin to leave What'd I Say in the third place. One of the best songs of all time, his only rock n roll tune and just amazing and so fun. I listen to it every day at least once and I never get tired of it. It's just the best thing that ever happened to me. Is extremely fun to play and listen to, and every time I hear it I dance, way better than anything else he ever did.

This song is awesome!. Not only created a new genre of music (called soul). Also, it was make complettely improvised in a concert. And is really good

It even makes the top 10 best songs ever named by rolling stone magazine

Great song and rhythm

4 I Can't Stop Loving You I Can't Stop Loving You Cover Art

Off to college, far from home... left my first love behind... she soon found another, and when this song came out it matched my feelings perfectly - has always been my favorite Ray Charles track...,

The greatest of all his song's. I vote it #1.

A beautiful ballad.

I've once a boyfriend whom I considered a trully 'gentleman'. He was a very charming guy AND I fell IN love with him. THE FIRST gift as token OF our relationship, he bought ME this CD OF RAY CHarlea. A great singer AND a EVER lasting love song.

5 Mess Around Mess Around Cover Art

It might be a good song but I still didn't listen to it

planes trains and automobiles pretty much sums up why this song was so great. RIP both charles and candy

The Made - Up song, RAY was one of the BEST.

6 Shake Your Tail Feathers Shake Your Tail Feathers Cover Art

Most recognised song by ray charles, courtesy of the blues brothers. Neewer generations would heard of this song as well, this song gives a great vibe when listened to, RAY CHARLES BEST SONG EVER!

This should be #1 What were you think putting it at #9

very groovy and funky song of its time and still retains it to this very day!

7 I Got a Woman I Got a Woman Cover Art

The fact that this isn't in top two means that people didn't notice a blues artists best jazz song. Hell, they don't even know the difference between jazz and blues.

I have no words to this music, just perfect!

It's just an awesome music.

8 Unchain My Heart Unchain My Heart Cover Art

I vote for this song not because it is my favourite, but only because it needs to be higher. I know the man has plenty of songs that would work.

Probably in the top 3. An obvious top 5 though.

It is simply his best song. Ray Charles was a very good artist and he shows his greatness in this song. Why somebody wouldn't vote for this song I don't know.

Es la mejor por mucho. Sois bastante rancios por aquĆ­. Lilas.

9 Hallelujah, I Love Her So Hallelujah, I Love Her So Cover Art
10 Let Me Hear You Call My Name

It's such a wonderful, soulful song.

The Contenders
11 In the Heat of the Night In the Heat of the Night Cover Art

Just a lush soulful grove put together by long time collaborator
Quincy Jones.

I hadn't heard this song until now... Wow... It's incredible!

12 You Don't Know Me You Don't Know Me Cover Art

Along with Georgia, this is Ray at his best!

Ray Charles... You Don't Know Me but I love you.

One of the most romantic songs ever!

A pure gem of a song. A true Classic!

13 One Mint Julep One Mint Julep Cover Art
14 Night Time is the Right Time Night Time is the Right Time Cover Art
15 If I Could If I Could Cover Art

Seriously, this is his best song in my opinion. Very underrated

16 Greenbacks Greenbacks Cover Art

This song is super sexist, but also super funny! Great chorus and a fun, bouncy song. Charles bounces back and forth between speaking and singing, and his delivery is hilarious!

17 You are My Sunshine You are My Sunshine Cover Art

The most unique, creative, exciting version there has ever been of this classic. This is also the very best ever performance by the Raelets. I'd put it at #2 right behind What I'd Say.

Proves Ray can give soul to any song, even one that definitely raises your blood sugar to dangerous levels.
