Video: "To Love Somebody"

Nina Simone's currently on my playlist...I downloaded an album one time. "To love somebody" is one of my favorite songs, but her version's a better one than the original done by the BeeGees.... :-) She sounds like Tracy Chapman, but she has a more interesting lifestory. :-)

In her later years, she was diagnosed with a Bipolar Disorder, which she struggled with and reluctantly took meds for. (People who achieve greatness always have had to grapple with an internal conflict at one point or another in their lives, I always say.)

Her concerts were supposed to be "not just performances, but events". I would have loved to have sat in one. :-)
