*You can find the list of links of my full 30 Days of Truth here.
The first time I heard your music was while watching Point of No Return with my dad. As soon as the movie was over we headed off the to music store to buy the soundtrack and I fell in love with your music.
I had almost every album you ever put out, every compilation and best of. Then they were stolen in a robbery amongst other things of mine. Yet the only thing I really got mad about was that my entire Nina Simone collection was gone. Im slowly building up my collection again, this time digitally!
I cant help thinking of my dad whenever I hear one of your songs. After he died the first thing I listened to was Feeling Good. I just knew he would appreciate it.

Feeling Good – Nina Simone
Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
And I’m feeling good
Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel
Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don’t you know
Butterflies all havin’ fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when day is done
That’s what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel
