    Allow me the pleasure of starting this thread honoring the United States of America




    Such a thoughtful and sad version of this gorgeous song sung by Ray... he knew that time was closing in on him, his voice frail and his body succumbing to the ravages of age. He still could find the energy to belt out this soulful gems.
    Rest In Peace, Genius.
    You are missed.

    Louisiana.



    The uncanny resemblance of the powerful vocal style between Aaron Neville and Ray Charles.

    The raw passion embodied in this version is just like Ray Charles' Georgia, only it is more critical instead of endearing.

    Louisiana just gets dumped on. The flood in 1927, then again in 1965 with Hurricane Betsy, and yet again in 2005 with Katrina...now BP Oil.

    I will still go back for vacation and if the vacation ends up spoiled by another hurricane mixed with oil...I will still go. My purpose will change but my heart will remain intent on seeing my Superbowl Champion team play in the Dome.

    The Bruce I love before the rest of the world discovered him.
    I cringe with pain when he belts out the words, "...Gulf Stream waters."

    It was a dream. It was all a lie. Everything that was said was all a lie.
