"Ain't Got No/I Got Life" by Nina Simone

A medley consisting of two songs originally written for the musical, Hair, "Ain't Got No/I Got Life" is an uplifting, life-affirming sensation.  Though not written by her, Nina Simone sings with such passion that she'll make you believe that she penned every word.  The lyrics are, simply put, genius, and Nina's vocal delivery is perfect.  The sheer emotion she belts out in the second half of the song sends shivers down my spine.  A good friend of mine put it best when he once stated, "If everyone listened to this song, the world would be a better place".
