Compared to What - Dee Dee Bridgewater

By Alexandra Spürk (Alexi) (Own work), via Wikimedia Commons

One of the things I like about YouTube is its suggested viewing list. I don't even remember what I was watching yesterday when I saw the following suggested to me: the Vietnam-era protest song "Compared to What" in a great video by Dee Dee Bridgewater.

It's probably better-known in the version by Les McCann, and was also recorded by Roberta Flack and more recently by John Legend and the Roots, but I like this version for the story told through the mix of 2D and 3D pictures. And, of course, Ms Bridgewater is amazing.
