Similar in "mood" but "First time Ever" was first written by Ewan MacColl in 1957 and was first sung by a guy (maybe it was even Ewan) before Roberta Flack recorded it. If David does a Roberta Flack version of it, I think I will be sick; but if he sings it unsentimentally, like the orignal recording, sung by a guy (with a heavy Scottish accent if I recall), it could work for him.
