Without Words, It's All Humming

Hey, how do you like that? Two days after Carole King's birthday we've got the birthday of Gerry Goffin, who wrote the lyrics for so many of her great tunes--often writing from the girl's point of view.  They made a great team (it's said Lennon and McCartney wanted to be them), and were even married from '59 to '68.  After the divorce, they also split professionally, but went on to write hits on their own.
