Top 10 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?

The best song... Hit the road jack

This is not good this is great.

Jump start in your day!

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

I just love this song.

Favourite song ever!

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

Great song and rhythm

Simply cannot be better

4 Mess Around Mess Around Cover Art
5 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.

6 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.

7 Shake Your Tail Feathers Shake Your Tail Feathers Cover Art
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.

9 Hallelujah, I Love Her So Hallelujah, I Love Her So Cover Art

11 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!

12 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!

13 Night Time is the Right Time Night Time is the Right Time Cover Art
14 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.
