She took her first and only turn as a PopStarComposer on the 1985 Creator/SallyField and Creator/JamesGarner film ''Murphy's Romance,'' writing a soundtrack which included cult favorites like "Running Lonely" and "Love for the Last Time." Sadly, an official soundtrack was never released, much to the head scratching of her fans.

American [[SingerSongwriter singer-songwriter]].

One of the last generation of Tin Pan Alley songwriters to come out of the famous Brill building in New York City, Carole King had her first #1 hit in 1960 at age eighteen with "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", cowritten with her songwriting partner Gerry Goffin. Together, King & Goffin wrote many American pop hits in the TheSixties. After the team split up in 1968 King moved to California to write on her own and began her own performing career. King went on to become the most successful female songwriter of the 20th century, writing or co-writing 118 songs that hit the popular music charts between 1955 and 1999. Other hits written or co-written by Carole King range from the sublime "You've got a friend" (written for James Taylor) and "Pleasant Valley Sunday" (A hit for Music/TheMonkees) to the ridiculous ("The Locomotion", co-written for Little Eva). "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman" was a #8 hit for Music/ArethaFranklin in 1967.

As a songwriter first and a performer second, King has frequently been CoveredUp, to the point where her song "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman" was originally credited to Music/ArethaFranklin on this very wiki. "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" was originally a hit for Music/TheShirelles and then covered by many, many people since, including Music/LindaRonstadt, Ben E. King, Dusty Springfield, Laura Branigan, Little Eva, Roberta Flack, The Four Seasons, Bryan Ferry, Dave Mason, Dionne Warwick, Melanie Safka, Music/{{Cher}}, Music/EltonJohn, Norah Jones and Music/AmyWinehouse.

"You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman" was a #8 hit for Music/ArethaFranklin in 1967.

As a songwriter first and a performer second, King has frequently been CoveredUp, to the point where her song "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman" was originally credited to Music/ArethaFranklin on this very wiki.

King, Dusty Springfield, Laura Branigan, Little Eva, Roberta Flack, The Four Seasons, Bryan Ferry, Dave Mason, Dionne Warwick, Melanie Safka, Music/{{Cher}}, Music/EltonJohn, Norah Jones Jones, and Music/AmyWinehouse.



Fortunately King managed to uncover herself with her 1971 album ''Tapestry'', which included "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", You've Got a Friend" and "You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman" with several new compositions, including the #1 hit "It's Too Late". ''Music/{{Tapestry}}'' went on to become the top selling solo album until Music/MichaelJackson's ''{{Music/Thriller}}'' finally surpassed it in 1988, seventeen years later.

She took her first and only turn as a PopStarComposer on the 1985 Creator/SallyField and Creator/JamesGarner film ''Murphy's Romance'', writing a soundtrack which included cult favorites like "Running Lonely" and "Love For the Last Time". Sadly, an official soundtrack was never released, much to the head-scratching of her fans.

King has also appeared sporadically in acting roles, notably three appearances as guest star on the TV series ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' as Sophie, the owner of the Stars Hollow music store. King's song "Where You Lead (I Will Follow)" was also the theme song to the series, in a version sung with her daughter Louise, [[RealitySubtext which is surprisingly appropriate]], since King herself gave birth to Louise as a teenager, which mirrors the age relationship between the fictional characters. She also appeared on Broadway in the play ''Theatre/BloodBrothers''.

In May 2012 King announced that she was finally going to take some time off at age 70. It remains to be seen if she is retiring or just taking a break for a while.
