A Song For You

Another one from Leon Russell, Song For You. Wiki: “”A Song for You” is a song written and originally recorded by rock singer and pianist Leon Russell for his first solo album Leon Russell, which was released in 1970 on Shelter Records. A slow, pained plea for forgiveness and understanding from an estranged lover, the tune is one of Russell’s best-known compositions. It has been performed and recorded by an array of artists, spanning many musical genres. Elton John has called the song an American classic.”

The Carpenters popularized it. But Ray Charles’ version is most copied. Listen to this from The Voice of Holland –

David Whitley in The Voice of Germany, a more contemporary R&B flavored take on the song.

Now it’s Karen again.
