The Music of Goodbye (Love Theme From Out of Africa) (Melissa Manchester and Al Jarreau)
The Movie This is From: Out of Africa
The Better Known Song From This Soundtrack: None
John Barry wrote the beautiful score for the Streep-Redford movie Out of Africa, including the music for this ballad. But the lyrics are by husband and wife team Alan and Marilyn Bergman who have provided words for a huge variety of movies – everything from Best Friends to Yentl.
Fun fact: This song reached #16 on the US Adult Contemporary chart.
