A Song I Listen To When I’m Happy

May 26, 2014

Here’s a song that always heightens my good mood whenever I’m feeling happy. Nina Gordon‘s version of NWA‘s Straight Outta Compton.

Forgive the swear words and cuss words – they are not words I would normally say or promote, and thinking about it now, they are hard to justify. Please don’t listen to this if you can’t understand that sometimes insulting terms (of the foulest nature) can be re-purposed to become positive. In this version, for example, Nina delivers what amounts to the Ballad of Ice Cube, a eulogy for a folk antihero.
