Where you gonna run to?

For today I give you Nina Simone and her classic “Sinnerman.” This is a song that I will often put on repeat while I’m writing dark stories.  Every part is brilliant, from Simone’s flawless vocals to that driving high hat giving it a sense of urgency and anxiety. This is another apocalypse song, and what can be more frightening that to search desperately for shelter, only to have the very rocks reject you, and the rivers and seas running with blood?  All 10 minutes and 21 seconds is worth your time.
