You're Beautiful As You Feel...

Last night, after the earthquake, Ryanne and Zack were singing "I Feel The Earth Move" and neither knew any words past those...I said, "Oh, I love Carole King. Tapestry is my favorite!" I was laughed at. Then, again, this afternoon, she was mentioned again {okay, I mentioned her}.

I'd take a moment to encourage you to buy this album.

Carole King is an amazing singer song-writer...Just take a look at her resume:

"Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" (The Shirelles)
"Take Good Care Of My Baby" (Bobby Vee)
"Up On the Roof" (The Drifters)
"The Loco-Motion" (Little Eva)
"One Fine Day" (The Chiffons)
"Go Away Little Girl" (Steve Lawrence)
"Don’t Bring Me Down" (The Animals)
"I’m Into Something Good" (Herman’s Hermits)
"Pleasant Valley Sunday" (The Monkees)
and "(You Make Me Feel Like) a Natural Woman" (Aretha Franklin)

If you are looking for a new album...a new music adventure. Buy this.

The fact that I was SEVEN years old when Tapestry came out is a testament to the AMAZINGNESS of this album!

Carol King also wrote, "You've got a friend" and the best TV Theme song ever- "Where you lead...I will follow..."
I cherish your love and appreciation for music!! It is definitely something that we share...and perhaps I can even take a bit of credit for.

I LOVE this album! One of the songs came on my shuffle this morning, and I remember thinking that Tapestry is just one hit after another. SUCH A GREAT CD :)

Pleasant Valley Sunday is one of my favorite songs. Before I knew that Carole King wrote it and before I knew that it was the Monkees who first made a hit of it, I knew it from a Christian band called Code of Ethics. Remember them?
Tapestry is a great album.

I still have my 33 RPM album of this...the one I purchased when it came out...back in the early 70's...when I was in junior high (that is what we used to call it by the way...the term 'middle school' had not been invented yet!). I believe that I also once owned this album on cassette and on cd....and now I have downloaded onto my ipod. Technology advances....great music stands the test of time.
