What I Love Right Now: "Feeling Good"
I really, really like cover songs. That is no secret. This classic from The Roar of the Greasepaint, The Smell of the Crowd came to me by way of Muse, then Nina Simone. I can't get enough.
Muse's live version kills me--I live for a group-sing. Nina's is simple and deep. And, oh, that brass part. Mmm.
The perfect pick-me-up when the never-ending heatwave has turned into cold, drizzly rain. Because the endsummer blues get us all, don't they?
