WHAT'D I SAY



Años de cambios de estilos musicales. Eran los inicios de lo que hoy en día se recuerda como "rythm & blues".
Empezaba el fin del mambo, del cha-cha-cha-, bolero y del rock clásico.
El genio de la música y de la letra se llamaba Ray Charles y la canción "What'd I Say", aunque su autor siempre dijo que se llamaba "What I Say".

No se si será una de las canciones más versionadas de la historia, pero lo que si que se, es que en su momento la versionaron todos los cantantes solistas, grupos y orquestas del momento, cuando actuaban en directo. Nadie se hubiera atrevido a decir que no disponían de este tema en su repertorio.
Versiones grabadas por otros artistas, las hay como para perderse. No hay rockero clásico que no la tenga en su repertorio.
La revista Rolling Stone, la colocó dentro como la nº 10, en su lista de las 500 mejores canciones de todos los tiempos.

Los acordes, para los que conozcaís la canción, son los típicos del rock y del blues, es decir E7, A7 y B7 (Mi7, La7 y Si7).

E7
Hey mama, don't you treat me wrong
E7
Come and love your daddy all night long
.............A7..............E7......B7...A7...E7..B7
