Pleasant Valley Sunday is a fitting song for a what is indeed a pleasant Sunday, but of course I have a more sombre reason for posting it today; as a tribute to its writer Gerry Goffin who died a few days ago
Goffin's contribution to modern music cannot be underestimated. Just a look at his string of song writing credits here fair takes your breath away. An immense talent, RIP.
Goffin and songwriting partner and wife Carole King, 1959
