That Nina Simone covered Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl?”
It just came up on my shuffle and blew my mind.
Here’s a clip:
Again, Ms. Simone proves herself to be the world’s greatest badass.
i was surprised by this too. it's near the end of her double cd 'anthology' set; i'm not really sure why it was included and stronger material was excluded ('wild is the wind' excluded? GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!), but it's strange and interesting to hear.
Nice! I'll have to check this out. Her cover of Cohen's "Suzanne" is just about the most beautiful song I've ever heard. She is incredible.
She is always great, especially on a rainy day in Seattle. =)
Its the 7th song on her album Baltimore, which is awesome.
I am constantly floored by Mississippi Goddamn.
aah, but did you know that Darryl Hall was a member of a fantastic 60's Philly Soul outfit called The Temptones?
Lots of info and photos here.
