Bloggin me softly

Time for a tune post?

I grabbed this picture over at She Who Seeks blog.

Those of us my age, enjoying the songs of our past (as in Classic Rock) probably remember the song "Killing Me Softly With His Song". If your ears are now wanting to hear it, I've included a youtube clip at the bottom.
But first
nice spectrum I found at NASA

I thought by changing a few words in the lyrics I could create a blogging parody. Blogland could use a good song because blogging ain't what it used to be.
Bloggin me softly with his/her (whatever fits) post.

Expressing my pain with his phrases
Posting my life with his words
Bloggin me softly with his post
Bloggin me softly with his post
Telling my whole life with his words
Bloggin me softly with his post
I heard he wrote a good post
I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him, and read for a while
And there it was, this fresh post
A wonder to my eyes

Well ok maybe bloggin me softly is a stretch too far. This song has an interesting back story. Over the years I've found the back stories of songs can be very interesting. The wikipedia page for this song describes the story.
I first heard this story in a documentary about Don McLean. Singer songwriter Lori Leiberman (whom I had never heard of) had the idea behind the lyrics while listening to Don McLean perform at the Troubadour back in 1971. Two others (songwriter and a composer) were also involved but they didn't give Lori credit for the lyrics. Also, she was having an affair with that other songwriter. You can read the details at the wikipedia page.
