Along with his first wife composer Carole King, Goffin wrote the lyrics to some of the most memorable songs of the modern pop era – Will You Love Me Tomorrow, The Loco-Motion, It Might As Well Rain Until September, I’m into Something Good, Oh No Not My Baby and perhaps surprisingly (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman. He also wrote the lyrics for more Monkees songs including Take A Giant Step and The Porpoise Song.
There is a link below to The Independent’s announcement of his passing and The Guardian for his obituary. The playlist features 10 songs that he co-wrote. RIP Gerry Goffin, condolences to friends and family
