Before I heard Ray Charles do this song in 1981, Oh, What A Beautiful Morning was just another corny song from a musical. His version made it one of my favorite songs, showed me how Rodgers and Hammerstein could perfected match some words with a melody.

Last week was my 10 year old's end of the year school performance. His grade sang Oh, What a Beautiful Morning and it reminded me of Ray, so I played it for him afterward. Being the kind of kid he is, he wanted to hear the original. Even if I don't, he likes it better.
