Roberta Flack Lyrics

"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
Embarrassed 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

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)

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

Fugees Lyrics

"Killing Me Softly"

[Lauryn:]
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.

[Fugees:]
Hi, yo yea yea.
This is Wyclef, Refugee Camp
L-Boogie up in here
Prazrel (Prazrel up in here! Ha! Ha!)
Lil' Base sits up there on the base (Refugees up in here)
While I'm on this I got my girl L one time, one time!
Hey yo L you know you got the lyrics!

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style,
And so I came to see him and listened for a while.
And there he was this young boy, a stranger to my eyes,

Strumming my pain with his fingers (one time),
Singing my life with his words (two times),
Killing me softly with this song,
Killing me softly with this song,
Telling my whole life with his words,
Killing me softly with his song.

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed 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 (one time),
Singing my life with his words (two times),
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

[Clef:]
Yo L-Boy, take it to the bridge

Come on

[Lauryn:]
Strumming my pain with his fingers (yes, he was singing),
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.

[Fading:]
Strumming my pain
Put your hands. Put your hands for L-Boogie from the Refugee Camp
Refugees up in here
Singing my life with his words,
You know how we're doing
L-Boogie up in here
Wyclef
Prazrel
Said, L-Boogie up in here
Wyclef up in here
My man Lil' Base
Prazrel up in here
Jerry one time
We got Warren up in here
Killing me softly with his song,
Outside is up in here
Killing me softly with his song,
Refugee Camp
Refugee Camp
Refugee Camp
My ladies, my ladies up in here
We got up in here

Everybody got a breaking point, kid. And they read on you. The family niggas have read on you. That's why we gotta be prepared. It took way out need.

Killing Me Softly with His Song

song by Lori Lieberman

"Killing Me Softly with His Song" is a song composed by Charles Fox with lyrics by Norman Gimbel. The lyrics were written in collaboration with Lori Lieberman after she was inspired by a Don McLean performance in late Lieberman released her version of the song in , but it did not chart. In it became a number-one hit in the United States, Australia and Canada for Roberta Flack, also reaching number six in the UK Singles Chart. In , Fugees recorded the song with Lauryn Hill on lead vocals, their version became a number-one hit in twenty countries. The version by Flack won the Grammy for Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, and the version by Fugees won the Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The song has been covered by many other artists. Both versions by the Fugees and Roberta Flack were placed on the revised list of Rolling Stone's Greatest Songs of All Time.[1]

After decades of confirming Lieberman's contribution, Fox and Gimbel changed their story about the song's origins to downplay her role. Gimbel threatened McLean with a lawsuit in , demanding he remove from his website an assertion that McLean was the inspiration for "Killing Me Softly," but McLean responded by showing Gimbel his own words confirming the inspiration, published in

Lori Lieberman version[edit]

Aspiring musician Lori Lieberman was 19 years old in when she was introduced to veteran songwriter Norman Gimbel and composer Charles Fox; the two men signed her to a management contract in which they would write her songs and manage her career, and take 20% of her income.[2] The three shared a common Jewish heritage and Scorpio astrological signs, and they began to pool songwriting ideas.[3] Gimbel also began an affair with Lieberman, even though he was 24 years older and married. They kept the affair a secret for years.[2]

In November , Lieberman, now 20, went out with her friend Michele Willens to see Don McLean perform at the Troubadour nightclub in Los Angeles.[2] McLean's hit song "American Pie" was rising in the charts, but Lieberman was strongly affected by McLean singing another song: "Empty Chairs".[4][5] This song spurred her to write poetic notes on a paper napkin while he was performing the song.[6] Willens confirms that Lieberman was "scribbling notes" on a napkin as soon as McLean began singing the song. After the concert, Lieberman phoned Gimbel to read him her napkin notes and share her experience of a singer reaching deep inside her world with his song.[2] Lieberman's description reminded Gimbel of a song title that was already in his idea notebook, a title that contained "killing" and "softly".[7] Gimbel expanded on Lieberman's notes, fleshing them out into song lyrics. Gimbel said in that "Her conversation fed me, inspired me, gave me some language and a choice of words."[2] Gimbel passed these lyrics to Fox, who set them to music.[3]

Lieberman recorded the song in late and released it as a single in , produced by Gimbel and Fox. This version did not chart. Lieberman promoted the album by touring, and she always introduced the song "Killing Me Softly" by describing its origin in the McLean performance. Gimbel and Fox even wrote out for her this introduction of the song so that she could deliver it consistently at each performance. In in her first appearance on national television, Lieberman described this same origin story on The Mike Douglas Show after performing the song.[2] When Lieberman toured through Canada in to promote her second album, Billboard magazine carried a public relations piece from Capitol Records about the three-way "song-producing team" of Lieberman/Gimbel/Fox, including a description of the Don McLean performance inspiring the song "Killing Me Softly". Gimbel was quoted saying that he relied on Lieberman to inspire his songwriting creativity since he had passed the most creative days of his youth: "Now I need a reason to write, and Lori is one of the best reasons a lyricwriter could have."[3]

Don McLean said in that he was surprised to find out that the song described his singing. "I'm absolutely amazed. I've heard both Lori's and Roberta's version and I must say I'm very humbled about the whole thing. You can't help but feel that way about a song written and performed as well as this one is."[8]

Disputed origin[edit]

In the s both Gimbel and Fox were in agreement with Lieberman about the song's origin at a McLean concert. Sean Derek, who worked for Gimbel and Fox as an assistant in the s, confirmed that the two men would tell the McLean origin story "all the time".[2] However, Gimbel and Fox changed their stories around , to reduce or dismiss Lieberman's contribution.

In , the Lieberman/Gimbel/Fox songwriting team turned sour. Gimbel had divorced his wife three years earlier, but Lieberman eventually stopped the sexual relationship she had with Gimbel because he "had become emotionally abusive, controlling and unfaithful." She asked to be freed of her contract. Gimbel and Fox directed their lawyers to demand $27, from Lieberman to pay expenses, and to demand another $, of her future income. Lieberman's lawyer, Frederic Ansis, recalled later that Gimbel and Fox could have been "nice guys" like other managers in the industry who released their unsuccessful artists, but they chose the other route.[2]

By , Lieberman had long severed her ties to Gimbel, but she reconnected with Fox, who attended a concert of hers.[2] Lieberman was interviewed by The New York Times about her recent songwriting work. In this interview she said that when she was young, Gimbel and Fox had been "very, very controlling. I felt like I was pushed on stage, and I was singing other people's material, although that material was based on my private diaries. I felt victimized for most of my early career."[9] Fox never spoke to her again after this revelation.[2]

In , Gimbel demanded that McLean remove text from his website, the text saying that McLean was the inspiration for "Killing Me Softly". McLean did not remove the text; instead, McLean's lawyer sent Gimbel a copy of a New York Daily News article in which Gimbel is quoted and seems to agree with Lieberman's account.[10] In the article, Lieberman is asked how the song came about and what its inspiration was.[11]

Don McLean&#; I saw him at the Troubadour in LA last year. I had heard about him from some friends but up to then all I knew about him really was what others had told me. But I was moved by his performance, by the way he developed his numbers, he got right through to me.[citation needed]

Gimbel's contribution supports Lieberman's stance:

Lori is only 20 and she really is a very private person&#; She told us about this strong experience she had listening to McLean&#; I had a notion this might make a good song so the three of us discussed it. We talked it over several times, just as we did with the rest of the numbers we wrote for the album and we all felt it had possibilities.[citation needed]

Lieberman then adds:

Norman had a phrase he liked, 'killing me softly with his blues'&#; But I didn't feel the word "blues" was quite what the effect was. It wasn't contemporary enough, somehow. We talked about it a while and finally decided on the word "song" instead. It seemed right then when we did it.[citation needed]

Fox published a memoir in , Killing Me Softly, My Life in Music, which contained nothing about the McLean performance inspiring the song, and downplayed Lieberman's role in the songwriting team.[2] When Dan MacIntosh of Songfacts asked Fox in about the McLean origin story, Fox said, "I think it's called an urban legend. It really didn't happen that way." He described Gimbel and himself writing the song, then playing it for Lieberman later, who was reminded of McLean's singing. Fox said that "somehow the words got changed around so that we wrote it based on Don McLean"[12]

Gimbel described in how he had been introduced to the Argentinian-born composer Lalo Schifrin (then of Mission: Impossible fame) and began writing songs to a number of Schifrin's films.[7] Both Gimbel and Schifrin made a suggestion to write a Broadwaymusical together, and Schifrin gave Gimbel an Argentinean novel—Hopscotch by Julio Cortázar—to read as a possible idea. The book was never made into a musical, but in chapter two, the narrator describes himself as sitting in a bar listening to an American pianist friend "kill us softly with some blues".[7][13] Gimbel put the phrase in his notebook of song ideas for use at a future time.[14]

Lieberman released a song in called "Cup of Girl" with lyrics about being used by someone who would "rifle through her diary" to write songs about her, who was dishonest, promiscuous and took advantage of her. Lieberman says that Gimbel contacted her after the song was published, sending angry emails, but Lieberman deleted the emails instead of responding to them.[2] Gimbel died in

In , Lieberman said she was not seeking money or official songwriting credit, she just wanted the world to know the correct origin of the song.[2]

Roberta Flack version[edit]

Lieberman was the first to record the song in late , releasing it in early [17]Helen Reddy has said she was sent the song, but "the demo sat on my turntable for months without being played because I didn't like the title".[18]

Roberta Flack first heard the song on an airplane, when the Lieberman original was featured on the in-flight audio program.[2] After scanning the listing of available audio selections, Flack would recall: "The title, of course, smacked me in the face. I immediately pulled out some scratch paper, made musical staves [then] play[ed] the song at least eight to ten times jotting down the melody that I heard. When I landed, I immediately called Quincy [Jones] at his house and asked him how to meet Charles Fox. Two days later I had the music." Shortly afterwards Flack rehearsed the song with her band in the Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston, Jamaica, but did not then record it.[19]

In September , Flack was opening for Marvin Gaye at the Greek Theater; after performing her prepared encore song, Flack was advised by Gaye to sing an additional song. Flack later said, "I said well, I got this song I've been working on called 'Killing Me Softly' and he said 'Do it, baby.' And I did it and the audience went crazy, and he walked over to me and put his arm around me and said, 'Baby, don't ever do that song again live until you record it.'"[20]

Released in January , Flack's version spent a total of five non-consecutive weeks at number one in February and March, more weeks than any other record in , being bumped to number 2 by The O'Jays' "Love Train" after four straight weeks atop the Billboard Hot Billboard ranked it as the No. 3 song for [21] In April , Canadian singer Anne Murray included her version of "Killing Me Softly" on her album titled Danny's Song.

Charles Fox suggested that Flack's version was more successful than Lieberman's because Flack's "version was faster and she gave it a strong backbeat that wasn't in the original".[22] According to Flack: "My classical background made it possible for me to try a number of things with [the song's arrangement]. I changed parts of the chord structure and chose to end on a major chord. [The song] wasn't written that way."[23] The single appeared as the opening track of her Killing Me Softly album, issued in August

Flack won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, for the single, with Gimbel and Fox earning the Song of the Year Grammy.

In a house remix of Flack's version went to number one on the US dance chart.[24]

In Flack's version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.[25] It ranked number on Rolling Stone's list of The Greatest Songs of All Time and number 82 on Billboard's greatest songs of all time.[26]

Charts[edit]

Fugees version[edit]

Hip-hop group Fugees covered the Flack version of the song (titled "Killing Me Softly") on their album, The Score (), with Lauryn Hill singing the lead vocals. Fugees' version became an international hit, reaching number one on the U.S. Top 40 chart and number two on the U.S. airplay chart. The song topped the charts in over twenty countries, including the United Kingdom, where it is the best-selling hip hop single by a group,[41] additionally it became the country's best-selling single of , and remains one of the best-selling singles of all time in the United Kingdom. It was also the best-selling single of in Belgium, Germany, Iceland, and the Netherlands. It has since sold million copies in United Kingdom,[42] and has been certified 3× Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. In the United States, the song has been certified 3× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, for selling approximately three million units in the U.S. The Fugees recording won the Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal[43] and their music video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best R&B Video.[44]

This version sampled the song, "Bonita Applebum" by A Tribe Called Quest from their debut album, People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. A Tribe Called Quest had sampled the riff from the song, "Memory Band" from the psychedelic soul band, Rotary Connection, and their eponymous debut album. The Fugees single was so successful that the track was "deleted", thus no longer being supplied to retailers whilst the track was still in the top 20, in an effort to draw attention to their next single, "Ready or Not". Propelled by the success of the Fugees track, the recording by Roberta Flack was remixed in with the vocalist adding some new vocal flourishes: this version topped the Hot Dance Club Play chart. Since then, Flack and Fugees have performed the song together.[45] In , "Killing Me Softly" was ranked number 25 on VH1's Greatest Songs of Hip Hop and number 44 on its list of the " Greatest Songs of the '90s".

Background[edit]

"Killing Me Softly" was the last song Fugees recorded for The Score, after member Pras made the suggestion to cover it. They wanted to "see how we can create break beats. And of course, we all love A Tribe Called Quest and we went in like 'Okay, let's cut that sample.'" They then added a bass reggae drop.[46] Initially, Fugees wanted to change the lyrics of the song to make it anti-drugs and anti-poverty but the songwriters, Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox, refused.[47]

Composition[edit]

Fugees' version features "percussive rhythms" with "a synth sitar sound, Wyclef's blurted chants, Hill's vocal melisma on the scatted bridge, and a bombastic drum-loop track".[48]

Critical reception[edit]

Celebrating the album's 20th anniversary in February , Kenneth Partridge from Billboard reviewed the song, saying, "It's a lovely cover that maintains the spirit of the original while taking the material in new directions."[49] Alan Jones from Music Week deemed it "a sensational update" of the Roberta Flack hit, adding that it "touches myriad musical bases, appealing equally to pop, R&B, easy listening and dance fans. Stripped to its bare bones, it is beautifully sung, with just enough rapping to set it apart from the original. The whole thing is superbly underlined by a bumping bass and percussion. Simple, refreshing and a huge hit."[50]James Hamilton from the magazine's RM Dance Update noted it as a "plaintive girl and muttering chaps' sparse bass bumped and sitar plinked but still tenderly crooned remake".[51] In January , Spin described the song as "an instant classic, pumped out of every passing car from coast to coast, with Lauryn Hill's timeless voice never losing its poignant kick".[52]

Music video[edit]

The video, directed by Aswad Ayinde[53] and based on Lauryn Hill's ideas, never came out commercially in America.[54] The video features Roberta Flack.[48][55]

Bounty Killer remix[edit]

Fugees recorded a dancehall version with Bounty Killer rapping, and Hill singing a rewritten chorus. However, they did not receive permission to release it on The Score.[45]

Frank Sinatra - Killing me softly with lyrics

I heard she sang a good song, I heard she had a style

and so I came to see her and listen for a while.

And there she was this young girl, a stranger to my eyes.

 

Strumming my pain with her fingers,

Singing my life with her words,

Killing me softly with her song,

Killing me softly with her song,

Telling my whole life with her words,

Killing me softly with her song

 

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd,

I felt she found my letters and read each one out loud.

I prayed that she would finish but she just kept right on.

 

Strumming my pain with her fingers,

Singing my life with her words,

Killing me softly with her song,

Killing me softly with her song,

Telling my whole life with her words,

Killing me softly with her song

 

She sang as if she knew me in all my dark despair

And then she looked right through me as if I wasn't there.

But she just came to singing, singing clear and strong.

 

Strumming my pain with her fingers,

Singing my life with her words,

Killing me softly with her song,

Killing me softly with her song,

Telling my whole life with her words,

Killing me softly with her song

Frank Sinatra-Killing me softly-LYRICS - مترجمة

Finding shoes scattered in different corners of Svetina's room, he put them on her, stroking her legs below the knees. These dastrophics outside the door would like to play with you, but of course I won't let them and I will take you and my friend wherever I tell you, said. Rustam, addressing Sveta and holding her to his shoulders with his hand.

Passing with him through the outer room to the front door (under the glowing gaze of the rickets sitting at the table with food), we got into Rustam's car.
