    Imagine



    Sarah Vaughan:  Misty

  1. Its “The Very Best of Roberta Flack.”    I believe this one represents what I need for a representative sample from her career, including many of her top hits (and songs that are dear to me).

    Michael Jackson (aged 16) and Roberta Flack, When We Grow Up:

    for at least the lyrics to a short, profound track from Killing Me Softly.  It’s the kind of music I usually ignore, but the lyrics intrigued me.  When I finally hooked into the words, it instantly became one of my favorite songs.  It’s called Conversation Love.  I think Bill Seighman wrote the lyrics.  I wonder if anyone besides me was touched by that song.

    I remember the beginning: “Throw sad reflections,

    to the wind where they belong.”

    I’m still looking, because I want to recover that poem for myself.

  2. An amazing singer.
