Billie Holiday - I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good.mp3

This is the saddest song I've put up. Billie Holiday, aka Lady Day, was a woman with hands down most amazing voice ever. When you hear it you instantly fall in love. When she sings a song you can hear true emotion behind it. Real pain and sorrow, because that was her life. She didn't have to pretend. Especially in her later recordings. Drugs, alcohol and abusive relationships. Known more so as a Jazz singer she did cross over a few times to record the blues. Sadly it was the drugs and alcohol that killed here when she died of sorosis of the liver in 1959.
Billie Holiday
We Have Every Right To Dream Heroic Dreams.
Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look.
