Of course, one could argue with me, and that would be OK, but these are the songs I remember and love best. I saw Nina Simone perform these songs at a time when her music had a great influence on me and my peers. Her raw emotions and uninhibited interaction with the audience was something that you may never see again in a live performance. Nina's concerts had a quality of intimacy, whether held at NYC's Town Hall, or at the Village Gate; people wanted to communicate with her, and of course, she with them - and she did! Outspoken and forceful, perhaps it cost her something in her career - if you look at things that way. But she was answering to a higher power than money; she was true to herself. At my age, she is still a role model of sorts for me. She reminds me to speak my truth. I remember her today.
