REVIEWS
Average points: 4.9 (Reviews: 39)
******
A very good song. Became a #1 (1969) and a #9 (1998) in The Netherlands. Stays in the Dutch Charts for (totally) 24 weeks!
******
Ninas Höhepunkt! Live, intensiv und eine unverkennbare Stimme!
******
Ausgezeichneter song ! Gänsehaut Qualität.....
***
3x6? Gänsehaut? Sorry, aber ich finde weder ihre vibrierende Blechstimme noch den Song gut. Das touched mich leider überhaupt nicht.
******
▓ Behoort ook voor mij tot één van haar grote klassiekers uit eind 1968 !!! Ook bij mij kippevel !!! En ook de 6 sterren !!! (NL Top 40; 1968 / 1969: 18 wk / # 1) !!!

Nu zelfs opnieuw binnen in de NL Single Top 100 van 05-05-2007 op # 56 !!!
Last edited: 07.03.2008 13:16

Wow, a deeply touching anthem of self belief. UK # 2 in the autumn of 1968.
*****
Vibrierende Blechstimme??? Ich finde Nina Simone gehört in die Top 10 der größten Sängerinnen. Ihre Stimme verbreitet immer eine ganz eigene Atmosphäre und sie packt mich wirklich. So auch in diesen tollen sehr eingängigen Song. Super!
****
Sicher nicht DER Höhepunkt ihrer Karriere.
Trotzdem natürlich klare 4*!

klasse 5+
*****
Sehr guter Song aus den 60's. Also wenn das eine Blechstimme ist, dann braucht H.P. Baxter aber ein Ölkännchen.
******
einzigartig!!!
*****
Starker Song aus dem Musical 'Hair', großartig interpretiert von Nina Simone. Zu Recht ein großer Erfolg geworden, nur leider nicht in Deutschland.
*****
Tolle Stimme! Aber - typisch für die End-60er - eher nerviges Schlagzeugspiel. Der Drummer klebt förmlich mit dem Stick auf dem Becken.
******
Blijft een schitterende plaat. Swingend van begin tot eind. Laat de toeters maar knetteren en de voetjes van de vloer.
*****
...nice song of the great 60's...
******
Eindrucksvoll.
****
ein Nr. 1 - Hit, aber etwas "sperrig" und "nervig"
*****
ned schlecht
****
Wel leuk nummer...
*****
stark präsentierter Titel aus 1968 der amerikanischen Jazz-/Soul-/R&B-/Blues-/Gospel-Sängerin - 5*...
*****
Muy buena.
******
Klare Höchstwertung.
Kann durchaus Gänsehaut produzieren. Nina in Bestform. Ich will mehr davon...
****
... gut ...
****
mooi nummer
******
fantastic song!
******
24 weken Top 40 #1 / 678 punten

sehr gut
****
... gut ... 4+ ...
******
wonderschone plaat van Nina Simone, zo worden soul nummers niet meer gemaakt
****
Sehr okay - ihre etwas enspannteren Titel gefallen mir aber deutlich besser.
****
ganz in ordnung...
***
Nummer dat door Nina Simone eind 1968 werd uitgebracht. De singel stond begin 1969 acht weken genoteerd in de officiële Vlaamse charts en bereikte de tiende plaats als hoogste notering. Sterk gezongen, maar ik ben niet bepaald een fan van de vocals van Nina. Ruim twintig jaar later scoorde ze haar tweede hit in Vlaanderen met "My Baby Just Cares For Me".
3+
*****
Gute Version des Titels aus "Hair".
Last edited: 17.10.2013 18:57
*****
Ausdrucksstarke, sehr gute Version und insgesamt auch mit langsamerem Tempo vorgetragen als im Original oder in der Filmversion.
*
Je déteste cette voix.
*****
Nina Simone ist in 2015 mal wieder schwer angesagt - 12 Jahre nach ihrem Tod werden ihre Songs wieder gecovert, ihre Stimme wieder gesampled, ihre Leben in Filmen gewürdigt ... hat sie nicht alles !!!
******
Ein mitreissendes Hohelied auf das Leben.
*****

Klare 5 Sterne für diesen Klasse Song.
*****
prachtig nummer
