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".
- Magnum Opus: "Strange Fruit", as her Signature Song, is often seen as her best song, while Lady In Satin is considered to be her masterpiece in terms of albums.
- 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 They 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.
- Signature Song: "Strange Fruit".
