Oh! I remember the first time I heard this song! It was also, I’m ashamed to say, my introduction to Nina Simone. Ashamed because I’d gone much of my life, at the time unaware of this song and of Nina herself. I was just moved by everything about it. 15 versions YOU LIKE — I can’t wait to sample — My Brothers, thanks again for this weeks contribution!

Thanks for this as well. Most of this generation thinks this song was written by Jennifer Hudson for the Weight Watchers commercials. LOL! The Shawn Escoffery version is rare indeed, but NOBODY… I repeat NOBODY does it like Nina.

Baba, when you featured Meklit Hadero last week you called attention to her version of feeling good. Listening to it along with all these other version, you can really hear its uniqueness and strength. Wow.
