Nina Simone - I Loves You Porgy

Dag, it's been like three months since I last posted a Nina Simone thing here, but this song has been spending some time in my brain lately.
About a year ago, I saw a one-man show about the life and career of George Gershwin. He discussed how this song was a musical oddity. Something about progressions of notes or something. I dunno. But since then every few months I spend a week just going I loves you PorGEEE. And Nina Simone does these great stutters throughout. I am not selling you on any ideas that are new to you.
