oh dip - that song is the craziest shit

i have a documentary on billie holiday where it shows some pictures from the first time she performed it live and tells the story - she performed it in front of an audience full of strictly white folk and she sung her heart out and when she was done the room went completely silent - then all the sudden after a minute one person starts clapping, then the entire room gives a standing ovation

it was deep

and that's lyrics are harsh man, billie's my girl - she's the best that ever did it
