YMMV: Billie Holiday
  • Colbert Bump: Holiday's popularity has gained a recent boost between Blacksad using "Strange Fruit" and Fallout 3 using "Crazy He Calls Me".
  • Nightmare Fuel: "Strange Fruit", describing the sinister scene of a lynching and contrasting it with a peaceful Southern evening. Made worse in that it's based on an actual event.
  • Older than You Think: People tend to forget that the inextricable link between music and drugs long predates rock 'n' roll - or recorded music for that matter. Holiday was arrested on her deathbed for heroin possession.
