Set No. 6-10
Help Me Make It Through the Night

Speed of the Sound of Loneliness


Written by Country singer Kris Kristofferson in 1970, inspired by a Frank Sinatra answer when asked what he believed in: "Booze, broads, or a bible; whatever helps me make it through the night.' In the US, a cover by Sammi Smith made it no No.1, but in the UK the big seller was from Gladys Knight and the Pips in 1972.
