    Default Can't Stop Loving You

    In CSLY, Sammy sings the line "Hey Ray, what you said is true".
    Anyone know what/who this refers to ?
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    First off, I never knew he said "Hey Ray".....I thought he said "ain't right."

    I'm not one that ever really gives a shit about lyrics but I think this is easily one of Sammy's best songs lyrically. It's eerily appropriate to my relationship with my ex-wife. I remember listening to this just after my divorce and I was like, "what the fuck?..." It was like I had spilled my guts to Sam and he made a song out of it!

    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    So who is Ray?
    I can't imagine that Sammy decided to quote Ray Daniels in a song.
    The Ray Charles bit is a possibility, but seems unlikely.

    That's a fine piece of trivia.
    Thanks

    Uh, no; it REALLY is Ray Charles. Sammy said it in an interview (maybe Rock Line or the album premiere, not sure).

    I myself have always wondered what he meant when he said "Hey Ray, What you said is true". That's one mystery solved.
    I'm cool.
