Listen, we all know that , single or in a relationship, Valentine’s day is some ol’ bullshit. This isn’t about that. I was fiddling around with some music today and decided I’d hit all the lonely people and lovers with a remix of Nina Simone’s song “Be my Husband”. It’s no secret, I love Nina Simone and remixing her is always fun for me. I mean, who hates Nina Simone, anyway? If you do, you’re a dickhead.
So, enjoy this remix. Send it to a loved one. Send it to the person who got you locked in the friendzone. Send it to the person you think you could fuck but aren’t totally sure. Like Nina, this is for everyone. Enjoy, Lovers…

For the last couple years , during live shows, i’ve been doing a variation of this Nina simone mash up. Basically, I took a bunch of different samples from her catalogue and made one song out of them. I’m bout ready to retire it from my live set so I figure I might as well release it into the world.
I made downloading possible but there’s a limit at 100 so, just in case, here’s an alternate link to download it.
Here’s is the third and final Nina Simone mix I’ve made.
It’s got a few of my all time favorite Nina songs (“four women” and “do i move you?”)
1)images of a wayward soul
2)Rag and old iron
4)I’m gonna leave you
5)No good man
6)I want a little sugar in my bowl
7)I wish I knew how it feels to be free
8)to love somebody
9)Do i move you
10)blues for mama
12)I can’t see nobody

Who doesn’t like Nina Simone? An asshole, that’s who.
With this in mind, i’ve decided to compile three mixes of some of my favorite music that she has made. I was gonna get all anal and organize the mixes by mood or something but , the truth of the matter is, 80% of these songs fit under “depressing as shit” so it kinda wasn’t worth it.
So, with that said, here’s the first mix of the trio. I’ll put up the others over the next few weeks.
3)either way i lose
4)Keeper of the flame
6)Breakdown and let it all out
8)Wild is the wind
10)Nobodys fault but mine
11)Tell me more, and more and then some
