Been sittin’ on this for a minute, sorry.

DOWNLOAD: Zap Mama – “Damn Your Eyes”
From the album Seven (Luaka Bop, 1997)

Do you know the lead singer of Zap Mama, Marie Daulne’s, story?! Marie’s father was a white Belgium and mother a African Bantu. When Marie was only a week old, her father was murdered by Simba rebels because they opposed mixed race relationships. Her and her mother eventually escaped and were able to move to Belgium since her father was a Belgium citizen. Crazy. Read the rest of the story at the Zap Mama’s wiki.

The Etta James version:
