Gerald Goffin    1939-2014

 

Gerry Goffin (...)

collaborated with Carole King

to write some of the biggest

hits of the 1960s,

songs that endured

through generations

and became classics,

including

“Will You Love Me Tomorrow?,”

“Up on the Roof,”

“One Fine Day”

and “The Loco-Motion”

 

(...)

 

The couple’s writing duties

were clearly delineated:

Ms. King composed the music,

Mr. Goffin wrote the lyrics

— among them some

of the most memorable words

in the history of popular music.
