February 24 1973 : Roberta Flack’s Killing Me Softly With His Song hits #1!
I have always loved Killing Me Softly and for years I tried to get young singers I was working with to learn it, to sing it…and I don’t know if they thought it was too difficult, or dated, or I don’t know what but it wasn’t until the Fugees covered it that i started having success selling it!
Singers take note. It’s a great song to learn and sing.
Well, we’re in PA still and we went to church this morning. Nice service kind of hippy dippy but we enjoyed it. One weird thing, the paraded all the kids out and then brought them back in at the end. I dont know maybe they had their own service down the hall.
It’s snowing a little it. We had homemade pizza for dinner. My wife is the best. And now we’re in the parking lot borrowing wifi from the deli up the road. well, they advertise free wifi. Does it matter that they are currently closed? I’m not sure. it shouldn’t!!!
I’m nearing the end of this year long project. Today is the 323rd day of videos and my plan is for a year. It’s lookin like April 6 will be the last in this series.
I have some ideas for continuing the blog but still thinking about it.
Here’s today in music’s video, Killing Me Softly With His Song – another one I recorded at home before we came to the country.
