  1. One of the All-Time great ballads. πŸ™‚


  2. What a brilliant performer . . . AWESOME!


  3. One of my very favourites, gorgeous voice and wonderful song!


  4. I love Roberta Flack – but I can no longer think of this song without thinking of Hugh Grant and Nicholas Hoult in the movie “About a Boy,” one of my all time favorite movies.


  5. How nice to get a bit of super music, Denise. Brightens up my morning.
    My tastes run from Bach, through jazz and folk, but a real good lyrical song is always worth hearing.
    Thanks Denise.


    • Thanks John, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I have very wide-ranging musical tastes, depending on my mood, from The Platters, Louis Armstrong, Joan Bias, Bonnie Tyler, Elvis Presley, Josh Groban, light classical, etc. etc. in fact, most things excluding yodelling!


      • Oh, Denise. Joan Baez is my heroine as a singer. June and I used to sing a lot of her songs – mostly over the washing up!
        I hope you are still well, Denise. My prayers are with you.


        • Yes, Joan Baez recordings are also lovely! I used to sing (er, did I say ‘sing’, haha) when washing up o r driving the car!

          I am fine thanks, John, bit down but OK. Busy trying to decide what to keep when trying to fit contents of 3 bedroom house into bachelor pad. Impossible job unpacking too! This is mainly why I haven’t posted lately. Can’t get my brain into the right mood… Thanks for your kindness.


        • Thanks, Denise.
