Personal Quote:

[on Billie Holiday's version of Gloomy Sunday] When she first recorded it on the radio, there was a protest from the record company because it was too pessimistic and depressing, therefore they had her change the ending to make it more optimistic and hopeful and at that moment was born the first pop music.

The recording included her performance work "Wild Women with Steak-Knives (The Homicidal Love Song For Solo Scream)". See more »
