Strange Fruit

SSA. Lyrics by Lewis Allan (Abel Meeropol). Haunting arrangement based on a 1990s version by Siouxsie and the Banshees. Very different and more lyrical arrangement from Billie Holiday’s classic rendition, dispensing entirely with the original melody as written by Sonny White. It’s almost a lullabye with nightmarish bits suddenly emerging.
