common’s “misunderstood” – off his forthcoming album, finding forever, produced by devo springsteen who samples nina simone’s “don’t let me be misunderstood” – released in 1964 on her album broadway-blues-ballads
nina simone – don’t let me be misunderstood:
common’s rhymes sound so effortless…some of his best lyrics in recent memory…
he knew the president wasn’t addressing him
though dead presidents wasn’t dressing him
two kids from hot sex, no protection-n
people don’t see how aids is affectin them
she dance and she dance she dance for dem
her body move – but her mind was manican
thinkin – i dunno where they hands have been
relationships with men have been so damaging
she thought back to when she was at howard and…dreams of doing scenes with terrence howard and
broadway plays and dancing with alv n em
