Emmylou Harris – (Lost His Love) On Our Last Date. “Last Date” is a 1960 instrumental written and performed by Floyd Cramer. It exemplifies the “slip note” style of piano playing that Cramer made popular. It peaked at number 11 on the country chart and at number two on the Hot 100 behind “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” by Elvis Presley. Cramer’s recording inspired a number of successful cover versions, including a vocal adaptation by Conway Twitty.
In 1982 Emmylou Harris recorded the Conway Twitty version as “(Lost His Love) On Our Last Date” which was her fifth number one on the country chart as a solo artist.
