I have been a fan of Nina Simone for a long time. I think I heard of her for the first time when the Fugees record came out and Lauren Hill said "While you imitatin' Al Capone, I'll be Nina Simone, and defecatin' on yo' microphone." I was like, who that? I was sixteen or something. So I have liked Nina Simone for something like thirteen years. Plus, she covered all of my favorite songs, and I think she might be the reason why I like reinterpretations, remixes or covers, of songs.
This song, "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To," always surprises me. I am always shocked when the song gets to where it's going. I am just listening to a bunch of Nina Simone, and this song comes on and I have to listen to it three times with my mouth open and my head next to the speaker.
