The original is a 50's folk song... could you imagine being the inspiration for this classic creation? The artist's muse? This is love right here.

Next to several recordings by Aretha Franklin and a couple by Eva Cassidy, this is the best recording I ever heard.

I thought I felt this but now I realize 24 years later that I'm not loved the same way. 43 and feeling so unloved

I watched her perform this song at the Bushnell. The impact of this song is profound, especially when it is seen song live.

This is my love song. Every time I hear it I feel an emotional tug at my heart & soul. It used to so affect me because it made me remember how much I loved my husband, & for a long time it was painful to hear it. I am glad I felt so deeply about him a long time ago, & now I thank my lucky stars I got out of that marriage & found out what it's really like to be loved.
