A LOVELY WOMAN IN MOTION, HER HAIR WAS DARK AS NIGHT

My grandma’s funeral is tomorrow morning, and I’m having some trouble sleeping, so I happened to catch this interesting moment on a Letterman rerun on this hotel TV in Ohio.

Aaron Neville – Gypsy Woman (Live on David Letterman)

Gypsy Woman” is actually the first single that Curtis Mayfield wrote when he became the lead singer of The Impressions in 1961, and it ended up being the most successful single they ever had.  This is how their version goes.

The Impressions – Gypsy Woman

The version that moves me the most though is one that I became familiar with because of the opening to Wu-Tang’s newest (and perhaps most underrated) full group album 8 Diagrams.

Wu-Tang Clan – Campfire

The Persuasions – Gypsy Woman
