movie monday: an introduction to ray charles

one morning last week as we piled into the car, i said, ‘let’s hit the road, jack!’ and then (of course) i had to explain why i’d called the happy little dude “jack.”  he asked about the song again that evening when we got home, so i googled it and found this youtube clip of ray charles singing the song.  we listened to the whole thing twice, then watched a few of the cover versions and by the end of all that, he could. not. stop. singing. it.  didn’t help that he sort of gets stuck in an infinity loop and can’t find his way out.  we thought you might enjoy his rendition:

oh, and by the way, he had the hardest time saying “ray charles” for some reason and kept asking me about “rachel.”

    This little video made me smile a whole lot and laugh out loud. This kid definitely has a future in show business.

    My fave part is “So, Ray Charles, your song is kind of good, and I love your song with your ladies dancing. . .”
    Where does he get that close friend conversation style?!? What a guy that one is!!
