My good friend Brian texted me recently and said that he has been reading my blog again. Brian loves such a variety of music and he is always discovering songs both old and new. One day, a few years ago, we were over at our friend Pat's house and he played a Roberta Flack song called The Ballad Of The Sad young Men. It was so lovely and haunting. I found another version of that song by the late Norwegian singer Radka Toneff and also her version of Nature Boy.Both songs are below. For you, Brian.
