Bette Midler - The Rose on Experience The Divine: Greatest Hits (1980)

Bette Midler - The Rose on Experience The Divine: Greatest Hits
"The Rose" is a classic pop song written by Amanda McBroom and made famous by Bette Midler who recorded it for the soundtrack of the 1979 film The Rose in which it plays under the closing credits.

"The Rose" was first recorded by Bette Midler for the soundtrack of the 1979 film The Rose in which it plays under the closing credits. However the song was not written for the movie: Amanda McBroom recalls, "I wrote it in 1977 or 1978, and I sang it occasionally in clubs. ... Jim Nabors had a local talk show, and I sang "The Rose" on his show once." According to McBroom she wrote "The Rose" in response to her manager's suggestion that she write "some Bob Seger-type tunes" to expedite a record deal: McBroom obliged by writing "The Rose" in forty-five minutes.
