Killing Me Softly With Her Song
'I enjoy some of the newer things', Perry said recently. 'But you have to work at these tunes. They're more complicated than the old ones. After a while you see how much there is in them'. And this beautiful song is an excellent example of the 'newer things' Perry spoke of. It was voted a Grammy as song of the year in 1973 and was a smash hit for Roberta Flack, whose recording of it earned two more Grammys — one for Record of the Year and another for Best Pop Vocal Female Performance. It was written by the bright young team of Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox.
