High Society learned this song a few weeks ago for Beth and Scott Murin’s wedding at Gallery 1028 in Chicago. We had so much fun with this song that we are considering adding it to the regular repertoire. This is the 1958 version recorded by Ray Charles, but this song dates back to 1937 when the original recording was made by Roosevelt Sykes.
I am embarrassed to admit that the first time I heard this song was on the Bill Cosby Show when the Huxtable family lip synced it. I liked it immediately, bought my first Ray Charles cassette tape, and spent many happy hours listening. Enjoy!
