I realize that two of the greatest singers of Leon Russell songs are both dead. Is it my melancholy mood? Can you tell me who the singers are? I will tell you:

Karen Carpenter and Donny Hathaway. It is unbelievable that two of the greatest singers of all time both sang the go-to versions of a classic Leon Russell song; A Song For You.  As they say in Cuba, this song is de pinga, the shit. OK, I am older than the average blogger, but it is time to respect your elders and learn pop history.

Don’t believe me? Here are a couple of links:
