    Killing Me Softly and then The Way We Were

    Interesting that Stevie had 3 very deserved Album of the Year wins, but only You Are The Sunshine of My Life was his only song nominated for Song of the Year in the 70s.

    I didn’t know “What A Fool Believes” by the Doobies was a grammy song of the year winner. Alright Grammies!

    My vote goes to “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack. The most beautiful love song ever written. I didn’t even have to think about which song I was voting for as soon as I saw it was one of the choices.

    Life is a thin thread.
    We hang on tightly knowing
    it will snap one day.

    “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” I can’t think of an artist who hasn’t covered that song at some point in their career.
