"LADY DAY"- BILLIE HOLLIDAY - "No two people on Earth are alike, and it's got to be that way in music or else it isn't music."
Billie Holiday, Enhanced Photo by me. American jazz singer and songwriter. Nicknamed “Lady Day” by her friend and musical partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo.

Don't read into the billie holiday lyrics. I just like her, that's all. I'm single. I'm single until a man actually shows up to mingle.
