    Just out of curiosity, why did Vanessa choose to sing her own version of Paint it Black? What's so special about that song? :confused2

    I dunno'. It doesn't seem to be the best choice for her on an otherwise strong album, however. I do know the original was written possibly due to the death of a girlfriend which occurred just before that time and Mick Jagger's recovery from addiction... it seems though that on the single there supposedly is a comma after the word "it" so perhaps that has something to do with her personally? Maybe she's depressed or just likes the song?
