Aristocratic Music: Billie Holiday

Billie Holiday
"Don't Explain"

The irony is that it is when they are at their lowest and most tormented state that artists are able to deliver such emotionally poignant music. Painful, heartfelt, and tragic: Billie Holiday

Billie was a tortured soul, as were many during her day. Yet the music is much more brilliant and sensory than anything artists now are composing....interesting!
