My Baby Just Cares For Me...


From Martin Klasch:

"(My Baby just cares for me) featured on her (Nina Simone 1933-2003) debut album Little Girl Blue (1958) and was unnoticed for many years. Then in the mid-1980s, the song gets used in a [perfume] advertisement. It was released as a single, and became one of Simone's biggest hits, causing her comeback."

"Simone would never benefit financially from the album (Little Girl Blue), because she sold the rights for 3000 dollars. It meant that she missed out on more than 1 million dollars of royalties (mainly because of the successful re-release of "My Baby Just Cares for Me" in the 1980s)."

The animation is of course made by Aardman Animations.

... and the stencil is one of many by stencil-obsessive davaca.

I love Nina Simone so much and watch a lot of her performances on youtube. she is wonderful and was underappreciated until after her death. No one sang with emothin like she did.

I agree 100%.

She was a true great.

Modern jazz singers have nothing on her. (And don't get me started on pop "singers")
