It is nice to have beautiful blue skies but we really do need rain in Georgia. Perhaps by putting this song on my blog it will make the clouds move in and give us some much needed rain. Pretty please? Fingers crossed! My Daddy's potatoes need it!
The song "Rainy Night In Georgia" was written by Tony Joe White in 1962 and I have found this song on Youtube where he is playing a wicked guitar and singing his own song. Brook Benton recorded it in 1970 and it was a hit record and then was covered by many artists, including Ray Charles and David Ruffin.
The voice of Brook Benton is so well suited to this song, listen and see if you don't agree. That deep voice!
At the same time, I love the way that Tony Joe White sings it also. Songwriters are just in a league all of their own to me, I really admire anyone who can put music and words together in such a memorable way.
Scriptor Senex and Audrey...I wonder what made me think of this song for my post?
