A Song for You
"A Song for You" is a 1970 song written and originally performed by rock singer/songwriter Leon Russell. A slow, pained plea for forgiveness from an estranged lover, the tune was one of Russell's best-known songs. Later in the 1970s, soul singer Donny Hathaway and rock group The Carpenters recorded cover versions that eventually eclipsed the original in popularity.
Although it is a cover, Hathaway's 1971 recording of "A Song for You" is today considered one of Hathaway's signature songs, and is among one of the most important soul recordings of the 1970s.
