Go To Hell  performed by  Nina Simone  (1967)
Composed by Morris Bailey Jr.
From: USA
Mood: Defiant to the end
Recommended by jeanette [profile] on Tuesday 11th May 2004

I went to a funeral today, which is never going to be the most pleasant way of spending time. However, it was a humanist service and, as such, an appropriate and touching way to remember the individual concerned. Music was played, including Why? by The Communards: a great thing. Not neccessarily a brilliant song, but a very unusual choice.

Of course, events like this spark everyone off thinking and talking about their own fitting ends. I nominate this; a bit of Nina would be great at a funeral. I love the black farce of this track, and what a great piece of final gallows humour to play a song about hell as the curtains close around your coffin in the crematorium.

from Silk & Soul (RCA SP-3837)
available on CD - Nina Simone And Piano! / Silk & Soul (Camden Deluxe)
