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.

  7. Mike Matthews

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

  8. 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. ;)

  9. Beautiful, soulful and groovy. Meshed rules!

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