Roberta Flack: Killing Me Softly With His Song

Roberta Flack Cleopatra (nacida el 10 de febrero 1937 o 1939, las fuentes difieren ) es una cantante y músico que es notable por el jazz, el pop, y por la música tradicional de R & B, y. Ella es mejor conocida por su clásico sencillos # 1 "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", "Killing Me Softly with His Song" y "Feel Like Makin 'Love"; y para "¿Dónde está el amor" y "The Closer I Get To You", dos de sus muchos duetos con el fallecido Donny Hathaway.

Flack fue la primera en ganar el premio Grammy por Grabación del Año dos veces consecutivas. "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" gané en los Grammys 1973 y "Killing Me Softly with His Song" ganó en los Grammys 1974. Ella sigue siendo la única artista en solitario que ha logrado esta hazaña, y sólo U2, que lo hizo en 2001 con "Beautiful Day" y en 2002 con "Walk On", son los únicos en igualarla.

"Killing Me Softly With His Song"

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him
To listen for a while
And there he was this young boy
A stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever
Embarassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters
And read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

He sang as if he knew me
In all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me
As if I wasn't there
And he just kept on singing
Singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

[Break]

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me

He was strumming my pain
Yeah, he was singing my life
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly
With his song
