Very short, bittersweet

My favourite track of hers was always the first song I ever heard from her, "You Know I'm No Good." The moment I heard it, I could feel an unmistakable air of tragedy.

I had a feeling she wanted to go the way of Billie Holiday.

I was right.

But she gave the world a track that, I swear, if Billie Holiday and Nina Simone were alive today, they'd both want to cover it. Aretha in her prime would cover it.

Dusty Springfield would want to cover this track, if she were alive.
