Nina Simone’s talent was such that picking a favourite track is an almost impossible task – but Sinnerman might just do it..
A very short post today – a friend just sent me the video you can see below. It’s for the amazing Nina Simone’s Sinnerman. And despite the lack of any obvious visuals, it’s probably the most effective video I’ve seen on YouTube for ages. JUST LISTEN!
Nina Simone sings Sinnerman – who needs pictures?
UPDATE: I had to change the video, but the song still just as powerful.
One of my all time faves. Thomas Crown Affair used that song. I gues thats why Timbaland calls himself Thomas Crown. He just samples that and turned it to “Oh Timbaland”
I saw a mention of this having been sampled by Timbaland but couldn’t find it on The Breaks.
By the way – SOULcrates – genius!
An absolutely outstanding track. I’ve heard many versions of the song, stretching back almost 50 years (I’m 60). This is completely different to any other version I’ve come across, and the manic frenetic tempo fits the lyrics ideally. A modern day version of Dies Irae.
