“Cause if I’m misunderstood all my life would have been in vain….”
I’m a huge fan of Nina Simone and this version of “Don’t let me be misunderstood” takes the song and the phrase out of the popular love song theme and places it in a whole other dimension. It’s wonderful, and so is her introduction. It’s also a great example of music video from the era. Watch it with your Ears Open: Check the backing vocals.
