Song of the Day: Nico, "These Days"

Did you know that German singer/model/actress Nico was in Federico Fellini's "La Dolce Vida"? Or that she was deaf in one ear? Or that she was the cover model on Bill Evans' 1962 album Moon Beams? All those factoids are pretty interesting, but this 1960s cover of a Jackson Browne tune remains the most compelling part of Nico's biography for me. It's a haunting tune, buoyed by clean fingerpicking and straightforward vocals. Enjoy.
