Strange version with some copypaste from the first part... well, more Nina is always great... even if here this sounds very artificial.

 
maybe she's singing it to casual for you?
she sounds good to me but maybe a bit mellowed-out
also love the band

There are so many definitions of "love." I think it's unavoidable to describe her voice without recourse to at least one of them.

Super smooth, soulful and spirited Simone sound, BABY, excellent choice to follow Amy Winehouse. Thank you Radio Paradise. For sure, it's something we can't see. :)

Finally started paying attention to Nina Simone after watching Liv Perry dancing to this song with Carlo in that movie—oh you know the one. For awhile it was the first song on my Winamp playlist (after RP of course) and every now and then when my connection dropped I'd of a sudden be listening to it thinking that I was still listening to RP. Always knew it belonged here but surprisingly it's the first time I've actually heard it on RP.  Oh yeah, that movie was Stealing Beauty—not particularly memorable (to me) except that it led to a greater appreciation for more of Nina's music.

Reminds me a bit of a slightly subdued and refined Nellie Lutcher. I'd LOVE to hear some Nellie Lutcher here on RP. Maybe I should try and upload some and see what happens.{#Eh} This is really great!

Would really really love to hear that original medley after this!

Hell, I'd even settle for DLR's silly cover.  But, only if we can't get some Prima!

She never sang a song the same twice.  She added variations, pauses, drawls.  She was so great!  I have more of her CD's than any other artist.
