Putting a fresh spin on a classic isn’t anything new these days, we’ve been hearing these official flips for years now. But it’s hard to say anyone expected Ray Charles to get the house treatment.
Courtesy of Throttle, that’s exactly what we have here, as he takes on “Hit The Road Jack” and turns it up! Thoughts on this recreation?

The song was originally written by rhythm and blues artist Percy Mayfield in 1960, but Ray Charles made it famous as it topped the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in the latter part of 1961. The song is ranked number 387 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.
