RIP Gerry Goffin

Lyricist Gerry Goffin passed away on June 19. Although a jazz blog may seem the wrong setting to celebrate the life of a pop composer, his work, particularly in collaboration with his wife, singer/songwriter Carole King, contains some of the best examples of the genre - 1960s pop. It Might as Well Rain Until September, Oh No Not My Baby, Will You Still Love me Tomorrow? The Animals classic, Don't Bring me Down and Aretha's You Make me Feel Like a Natural Woman just a few of the many big hits Goffin was associated with.
He was 75.
Rest in Peace.
Lance.

Just recently watched a documentary about Carole King and was taken aback how many of my favourite songs were written by the two of them. Talented people.

Yes, so many classics - and many of them part of the soundtrack to my teens!
