One of the 2013 nominations for YALSA’s Teens’ Top Ten is Sarah Cross’s Kill Me Softly. The book title echoes the smash hit first made famous by Roberta Flack in 1973, Killing Me Softly with His Song. The song has an interesting (and contested) history that involves another musician, Don McLean.

There’s more. But first let’s hear our jukebook for the day.

Other books have used Killing Me Softly as their title…

…as well as a few movies.

But since we’re all about the music at Jukebooks, here’s The Fugees’ version of Killing Me Softly, featuring Lauren Hill.

    Roberta Flack, not Robert. She’s definitely female!
