A Saturday Song with Nina Simone

The Amazing Nina Simone

You got trouble in mind? Are you blue? Well, you won’t be blue always. Gonna keep this one simple, because maybe you need a little uplift like I did tonight.

As I was heading home from the job I have to do, looking forward to some rest before going to the job I love to do, I was getting some uplift from this song coming over the speakers in my car. God, Nina Simone’s voice affects me like nobody else’s.

In many ways my life is better than it’s ever been, but there are some real struggles going on too. Nina helps me get a bit of it out and she reminds me the future’s bright with that sun shining “in my back door some day.”

    I listened to her Baltimore album the other night. She is soothing when I need it, and less fattening than ice cream.

    1. Oh this is true. I want to bow down and do the laundry when she sings “Be My Husband.”
