It was alright for Al Green!

This is one of the perfect love songs of all time!

It was on this day (12th Feb) in 1972 that Al Green's 'Let's Stay Together' went to Number 1 in the US.

The track would be his only hit over in America.

But what a song it was! As Rolling Stones magazine put in as their sixtieth greatest song of all time in their top 500 list.

It was so good that Tina Turner covered in 1984.
