I've been looking and searching for years for the title and artist to a song in the film Boogie Nights. The song plays in the background when Dirk Diggler and his two buddies are sitting in the room snorting coke. It's a spectacular song that sounds a bit Motown and kind of sounds like Aretha Franklin but I don't think it's her. There's a line (no pun intended) in the song that goes something to the effect of "...try to make it real..." I think.

The song is not on either of the Boogie Nights soundtracks.

Does anyone know who sings this particular song and what the name of the song is??? Given the time setting portrayed in the film it's a song that probably came out some time in the 1970s.

The song is absolutely sensational and I'm dying to find out what in the heck the name of it is. Any help would be appreciated.

It is Roberta Flack's version of "Compared to What."

Thanks a lot. Actually a few weeks ago I was finally able to figure out what song it is. The song is amazing.

Thanks again for your feedback.
