Which Ray Charles? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/22/10

Let's clear up some confusion: there are two composers named Ray Charles. Here is information on the R.C. who actually wrote this terrific song: Ray Charles is the stage name of Charles Raymond Offenberg (born September 13, 1918, in Chicago, Illinois), an American musician, songwriter, and vocal conductor. He is best known for a series of easy listening record albums which he produced in the 1950s and 1960s as the Ray Charles Singers. This vocal group also sang backup on most of the recordings of Perry Como from 1950 to 1987, and Charles and his singers also appeared with Como in his live performances and on television. The Ray Charles Singers (with Charles featured prominently as lead male vocalist) sang the theme song to the television series Three's Company ("Come and Knock on Our Door"). He is sometimes known humorously as "The Other Ray Charles" to distinguish him from the great soul musician of the same name.

The Ray Charles Singers had a number of hit singles and albums, reaching number three on the pop charts in 1964 with one of the most successful easy listening singles of the '60s, "Love Me with All Your Heart (Cuando Caliente el Sol),"

As a songwriter, Charles is best known for the choral anthem "Fifty Nifty United States," in which he set the names of the states to music in alphabetical order. He also wrote some Christmas songs and other special musical material associated with Como. He has also worked in television with Bob Hope, Glen Campbell, and the Muppets. He continues to serve as a musical consultant to television programs.

memories | Reviewer: Kira | 7/27/09

Wow, I feel a little rushed- my elementary school had us learn that song in 1st grade! I could never remember 'in a calm objective opinion', but after was easy 'cause Kansas fit into the song perfectly. I'm in college now &, after 14yrs since I learned this great song, I still remember it! My choir teacher would be so proud, even just to know I still sing- though I'm not sure on the state, since I moved to Oregon. Kansas' still my favorite by a long shot lol

awesome | Reviewer: Locita | 7/14/09

how many ststes in the u.s.a ? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/20/09

I loved to sing this song in third grade. Everyone in my class had to learn it for flag day. I could not believe that I would ever learn and memorize this song. Some times I would just lip sing but finally I got it. Now it helps me in social studies. If my teacher says: "quick how many states are there in the u.s.a?" I would say "50 of course."

So helpful | Reviewer: (: | 5/27/09

I remember back in fifth grade we had to sing this. I did memorize it but after a year or so - I'm going into eight grade - I forgot the order past Montana and I'm trying to remember it again. This is a great song, though.

I learned this song in 3rd grade....... | Reviewer: lili | 5/5/09

Well in 3rd grade we had to learn this song! It was so hard at first but we got the hang of it. Also we had to hold up the signs to make it easier. But that made it way easier to learn it was really fun. My teacher was the nicest to learn at.

chorus | Reviewer: Mags | 4/23/09

I love this song because I have to sing it in chorus.
I'm trying out for the solo and I'm not that nervous because I
already got a solo for a different song this year. The solo part is...
in a calm objective opinion Rhode Island is the best of the...I have to sing in front of my whole chorus to try out!
It may not seem big but we have 110 kids in our chorus!

I have to learn this song... | Reviewer: Someone | 3/16/09

This song is a great song. As the 4th grader Im in 5th grade and I have to learn this song for chorus, but I think its a really cool song and i'll be able to learn all the states in a nice song which is really really cool I cant wait till my school concert and the rest of the chorus and I being able to sing all of the states in front of the whole school. So itll be real cool.

Everlasting Song | Reviewer: Social Worker K | 1/14/09

I learned this helpful song in the sixth grade. Now as an aspiring social worker I am going to introduce this song to the students I work with. Not only is this song educational but it is very fun. I know they’ll enjoy it just like I did. Thanks Ray Charles!
