We gave it a B

The Fugees may have topped airplay charts with their recent hip-hop cover of Roberta Flack’s 1973 classic, but the tune will always belong to her. Even underscored with 125 thumping beats per minute, as it is on this updated dance version, Flack’s Killing Me Softly — thanks to her still-aching-after-all-these-years delivery — remains as haunting as the one she’s singing about.
