Love this song!

I first heard this song years and years ago and, for some reason, it popped into my head yesterday. It took me almost 24 hours to remember the name of it ("Stay With Me") and the artist (Lorraine Ellison), and I just had to share it with y'all.

It is one of the most incredible songs ever. Not the lyrics so much as Lorraine Ellison and how she sings it. It sounds like someone broke up with her right before she recorded it. You can feel the pain and pleading in her voice. (If you don't want to wait for the embedded link to load, here's the direct link to YouTube.)

Oh, how sad and beautiful. Reminds me of Aretha Franklin "Share Your Love With Me". I hadn't heard Lorraine Ellison before, thanks for the introduction!

Yes she has a lovely voice. I had never heard of her before this. Thanks for sharing with us.
