"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"
Ewan MacColl wrote hundreds of songs during his lifetime, most of them in the British folk/labour tradition. "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" (1957) is a song MacColl and Peggy Seeger wrote about their love for each other. Fifteen years later, it was covered by Roberta Flack and was ranked the number one song of 1972 by Billboard Magazine.
