Meshell Ndegeocello: Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood

Today is Meshell Ndegeocello’s birthday, so we wanted to celebrate with another video by the talented bassist/vocalist.

In this clip, Meshell performs a cover of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”. The song was written for Nina Simone, who recorded it in 1964. A year later, The Animals released their hit version.

Meshell makes it groove.

I wish the bass were louder, but MeShell sounds great even though I wish she still played her Jazz.

Very nice version on this one. Her voice is great too!

Damian Erskine

YES! Love that… Meshell is one of the tastiest players around. (& the bass seems perfectly fitted to the mix in my headphones. Actually, a bit loud compared to the way I know some people would mix it, but I like it. ;)

Beautiful. When I saw her play in Austria many years ago I decided to become a bass player.
