When this fantastic song first was released in 1973, it rocketed to the top of the charts and stayed there for five weeks! It's a wonderful song, so full of heart and soul - it really reaches inside of you. It was a great song then, and it's a great song now!

"Killing Me Softly with His Song" was composed by Charles Fox and Norman Gilmbel, based on a poem written by Lori Lieberman, after she attended a concert by Don McLean in which he sang his work "Empty Chairs". The poem was titled "Killing Me softly with His Blues". The song "Killing Me Softly with His Song" was made famous by the 1973 recording of the American singer-songwriter Roberta Flack, which won three Grammy Awards and was on the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks. The song tells of the way music touches the soul of the listener; I was moved.

Roberta Flack was born in Black Mountain, North Carolina in 1937. She did so well at classical piano in her early teens that she was awarded a full music scholarship at Howard University. In 1971, she got her first break in her musical career when American actor-director Clint Eastwood chose one of her songs for his movie "Play Misty for Me". The song was "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" from her album "First Take". The album became a best seller and eventually sold 1.9 million copies in the U.S. She went on to score hits such as "Where is the Love" in 1972, "Killing Me Softly with His Song" in 1973, and "The closer I Get to you" in 1978. In 1999, a star bearing her name was placed on the Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

Killing Me Softly With His Song - I have loved this song since it first came out. I find meaning in the lyrics and the music speaks to my heart. I'm glad to finally "own" the song and have placed it periodically throughout my playlist.

I love her voice and the words to this song. This version is absolutely lovely. Her voice and the music are wonderful. It is a great remastered version.

Could very well be one of the best songs of all time. And although many people have tried it, no one has ever pulled off the emotional version that Roberta Flack did.

I like the other songs on the original vinyl she had. Wore it out. I like the CD, too. I want the entire album on my devices. Well worth buying.

Roberta Flack Version is still the best. A lot of people can copy her, but not her style or voice...Love her songs....Lyn
