Lani Hall - Love song

I never get tired of this song. Written and originally recorded by Lesley Duncan as a b-side in 1969 and then admirably covered by Elton John on Tumbleweed Connection, my favorite album by Sir Elton. Burt Bacharach once reportedly said that he wished he had written it. I have never heard a bad version by anybody but Lesley Duncan's is still my favorite. And here Elton and Neil Young take a crack at it together at the Bridge Benefit. And there's this one.

Lani Hall was a member of Sergio Mendes's band Brazil 66.
