Songs for Distingué Lovers is absolutely beautiful. I love Billie, she's absolutely perfect to listen to at night, while its raining outside. One of the most powerful and soulful voices ever. I saw a documentary on her and 3 other female singers of that era, who had tragic lives recently. It was fantastic.
If this song doesn't make you well up, then fuck you.
Man, reading abut the way she performed "Strange Fruit" in her nightclub act makes me want a time machine so badly. Closing the show, all waiters would stop serving when she started the song, and they'd kill all the lights except for a spotlight right on her. And she'd leave the stage after with no encores. I get shivers just thinking about it.
