Things I Like
My brother recently sent me an mp3 of "Blackbird" by Nina Simone. Good lord I thought I knew every good song by Nina Simone but I was very, very wrong. This song is incredible. Where do I start? My brother was commenting that he couldn't believe such a song was ever put on an album. It's fairly minimal and incredibly dismal. I can't stop listening to it.
A second recent addiction is "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke.
"It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die.
Cause I don't know what's out there beyond the sky."
"And then I go to my brother
And I say "Brother help me please"
But he winds up knockin' me
Back down on my knees"
