Nina Simone in Italy c. 1969 doing Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne” better than anyone ever did, including Cohen.
Her voice. Her voice. Her voice.
I saw her play when I was 16 years old. No idea who she was. Lord, she scared me. I had never seen ferocious like that.
Maya Postepski, drummer for Austra, did a remix of Kool Thing’s “Light Games” which is perfect listening for when you are getting ready to go out tonight. Or getting motivated to stay in and clean your room, and try on lots of outfits while you do so.
I really wanna know what this sounds like…
