Cover of the Day: Nina Simone - Suzanne

I have to do a little site maintenance this weekend, so things make look a wonky for a while. The search button, which I assume no one used, is broken and has been for a while, and the comment policy needs a slight update, and I have a few sitting in limbo that I need to deal with. (Just a reminder, if you want to throw facts at me, check them, please.)

Moving on...

I'm not usually a fan of Leonard Cohen covers. There are so few that are done right, and too many artists like to turn his songs into overblown power ballads. Nina Simone's "Suzanne" is one of the good ones. No, it's one of the best.
