Love is Blindness recording- nina simone

I know Bono wrote an original version of LIS for Nina Simone, but I have never found a recording by her. Do we know if one was ever done?

That would be amazing.

She's not Nina Simone (obviously), but I always loved Cassandra Wilson's version.

(And I'd post a YouTube video of it here if my computer wasn't completely pissing me off and freezing whenever I try to go to YouTube. wtf?)

My computer is behaving again, so here's Cassandra Wilson's version.
