Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" was originally an album track on her 1970 Atlantic debut album, First Take. But it actually didn't become a hit until two years later when it was used as the musical backdrop of a tender lovemaking scene in the movie Play Misty for Me directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. After a minute was edited out of the track to trim it down to a radio-friendly four minutes, the Ewan MacColl song was issued as a single. "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" had a six-week run at number one on both the pop and adult contemporary charts while peaking at number four R&B in the spring of 1972. Its success spurred the two-year-old First Take to gold status. The song won Grammy for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
