Music Video: Nina Simone: My Baby Just Cares For Me

My Baby Just Cares For Me... "featured on her (Nina Simone 1933-2003) debut album Little Girl Blue (1958) and was unnoticed for many years. Then in the mid-1980s, the song gets used in a Chanel no.5 advertisement. It was released as a single, and became one of Simone's biggest hits, causing her comeback."

"Simone would never benefit financially from the album (Little Girl Blue), because she sold the rights for 3000 dollars. It meant that she missed out on more than 1 million dollars of royalties (mainly because of the successful re-release of "My Baby Just Cares for Me" in the 1980s)."

The animation is of course made by Aardman Animations.

Wow. Lovely post. I love this song (who doesn't) but was unaware of its history, and of the aardman animation. You just made my day. Thank you very much.
