Frankie Miller – I Can’t Change It

I was watching Life On Mars when this song came on in an emotional scene. I’d never heard of the song before. I never heard of Frankie Miller before but what a singer. He wrote this song when he was 12 years old. Ray Charles ended up recording it also. Frankie’s voice plus this song is incredibly powerful.

Ray Charles did his usual fantastic job on it but I like Frankie’s stark arrangement. I can’t say enough about his voice. In some of his other songs, he reminds me of Bob Seger with even a little stronger voice. He wrote Ain’t Got No Money that Segar covered.

In 1994 while he was forming a band with Joe Walsh he had a brain aneurysm. He has fought back but sadly he can no longer perform.

If you don’t know much about him he is worth looking up.

    1. I’ve listened to some of his hits on Youtube. Very good songwriter also…Same with me…I’ve seen his name but never heard him until the show. There are a few songs on that show that I heard for the first time there.
