Roberta Flack had her second US No.1 when ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song‘. The song was first recorded by Lori Lieberman. It was rumoured that the song was written about Don McLean however writer Charles Fox has said otherwise:

“We [ie. Gimbel and Fox] wrote the song and [Lieberman] heard it and said it reminded her of how she felt at [a Don McLean] concert. Don McLean didn’t inspire Norman [Gimbel] or I to write the song but even Don McLean thinks he’s the inspiration for the song according to his official website!”
