    Thanks for the memory of my college days. Also, this song appeared in the movie The Big Chill.

    Rest in Peace Jerry Goffin. Carole Kings ex & co writer of many hits they had

      They wrote amazing songs together. The whole Brill Building crowd wrote the best songs and are some of the most amazing song writers.

      She doesn’t have as good a voice as her mother’s but it must be great to sing with your daughter and sing songs you and her father wrote.

      Together they wrote many a hit. and made others famous or known to the world. We’ll miss you Foffin

        Wow, another of their daughters. I guess music was in their blood. I so love Carole King’s voice!

    Marvin Gaye is still the bestest

    As we search our weakening memories of what some of us listened to in the 60’s, this story confirms my recollection and my opinion that The Big Chill soundtrack didn’t get it quite right…this story’s documentation comes closer to the wide range of music we heard… http://io9.com/an-archaeologist-excavates-a-hippie-commune-preserved-1592649745

      That was intriguing, especially, as you’ve noted, the music. I do have to say, though, that had my house burned they wouldn’t have found any show tunes but rather CSN&Y, Joni, Donovan and a few more Big Chill type albums. My taste wasn’t nearly as eclectic.

      It is so strange to think of an archaeological dig at a spot from the 60’s.
