Don’t worry, we’re not going to loco-mote for this afternoon’s dance break, but we will explore the Carole King thing a little further.
She celebrated a birthday on Tuesday – Happy 74th, Carole! – and has been celebrated herself quite a bit of late: recipient of the 2013 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the first woman to be so honored, and a 2015 Kennedy Center Honoree. (source: Wikipedia)
Although she has written star-making music for others throughout her career, her heyday as a vocalist came in the early 1970s with the release of her Tapestry album. Everyone in my peer group not only owned that LP but also wore out the grooves.
So now it’s time for a nostalgic Carole King Playlist. Turn up the volume, get up from your chair, and give in to the soft rock!
