“Ain’t Got No/I Got Life” is a 2:17 single by the American songwriter Nina Simone. The song also featured on Nuff Said (1968). It is a medley of two songs from the musical Hair, with lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot. The song charted at #2 in the UK and at #1 in The Netherlands. The song helped Simone gain pop-popularity under a new, younger audience, and became a standard in her repertoire. The 2006 Groovefinder remix of the song charted at #30 in the UK and remained on the charts for 16 weeks. In Ireland, it charted at #9 and remained on the charts for 15 weeks. In 2010, research conducted by PRS for Music revealed that the song is the second most performed in UK television advertising for its use on Müller yoghurt adverts. Read on...
