The song I have chosen this week is truly a beautiful song and beautifully sung.
It brings back many memories of the past.
Killing me softly - by Roberta Flack
Composed by Charles Fox and written by Norman Gimbel. this was originally sung by Lori Lieberman but became a number 1 hit for Roberta Flack in 1973. And it was her version that I first heard and loved. This is a song that is unforgettable. So many songs have "killed us softly".
In 1999 Roberta Flack's version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and is ranked #360 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It is also ranked #82 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all Time.
