What a strange song.... love her haunting voice but very disturbing lyrics.
This has always been special to me. Especially in the 70's. We should not forget how it was.
What an icon, what a voice.
That song has always given me the creeps. Bodies hanging from trees. It's very upsetting.
oh, wow, very dark - and beautiful - who can out-do her!!! the weird thing is, i've never heard this piece before - but it so reminds me of a piece of my own that i did enroute from the east coast to here some months back - called "we ain't talkin' cotton" - posted october 15, 2010, at http://gypsywomanworld.blogspot.com/search?q=cottonlove love miss holiday!
This song has always given me goosebumps. Have you read her biography? What a life...Pearl
Like this song, only recently found out what it was about though..creepy!
Just seeing her singing this song feels very unusual.
