This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Carole King's award winning, generation defining album "Tapestry."
In 1971, so many teenaged girls like me wanted to be just like Carole King. I studied the image on the album cover and imagined myself with long, curly hair and faded jeans, seated in the window and serenely gazing at the world. I played “Tapestry” so many times, I’m sure I wore down the record’s grooves. I sang along to “You’ve Got a Friend” and “So Far Away.” I danced around the house to “I Feel the Earth Move.”
That’s the way it is with the “soundtrack of our lives.” A piece of music will touch our hearts, lift our spirits, and transport us to a place where we imagine the life of our dreams.
How about you? What music provides the soundtrack to your life?
