Original Gal

Crazy lady is an original gal-- original music, original movies, original books. She's not one to say "I prefer the newer version of the song." Covers? Nope, she usually can not stand "mocking songs that deplete the value of the original." (Does that sentence even make sense? Geez.) There are exceptions, however. She adores Jill Scott's Hate On Me:

The song has always been her "go to" anthem for vengeance. Protagonist seeks revenge for rape and torture? Crazy Lady listens to Hate On Me for hours. Protagonist seeks revenge for her lover's lies? Hate On Me is looped on the iPod, over and over again. I know, I know, Crazy Lady and her ANGER ISSUES. Lately, though, she prefers Amber Riley's cover (cast member of Glee):

For once, I agree with Crazy Lady-- Amber Riley NAILS the song. She listens to both versions these days, especially when a character must pay for spying on a 9 year old genetic mutant, as she prepares to eat her brother. (Fiction, people, fiction...)

This is a great song! I'm embarrassed to say that I wasn't familiar with it, but I sure am now. Thanks for the tip!
