Sinnerman and Feeling Good are my two all time favorite Nina Simone somgs. I have a collection of her works and really get into just listening to her for periods of time.

I got turned onto her by Greg Dulli of the Twilight Singers. He did a great cover of Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair. Here is a Youtube video of a live version.
