Sunday Selection



Do any of you remember this song? It is the type of song that all can 'put a face to', I'm sure you can!


It was recorded in 1972 by Roberta Flack.

  2. One of the best songs ever. In fact, I hope to use it in one of my little slide shows next April. That is, if Fred will play along.

  6. I've always loved this song but now whenever I hear it, I think of lesbian friends of ours -- not long ago, they used it as the opening song at their wedding as one waited at the altar for the other. When they met 25 years earlier, it had literally been "love at first sight" and so this was always "their song."
