Carole King’s contributions to pop music songwriting and rock ’n’ roll history can’t be overstated. Her work, both as a composer and performer, continues to be the gold standard of fine form matched to pop melody. In fact, other canonic musicians ranging from Aretha Franklin to The Animals and The Drifters to Dusty Springfield have performed her music, partially to honor the legend and partially to make her work their own hits. In particular, Up on the Roof paints an unforgettable, visible setting. This melancholy take from her debut solo album Writer is a lovely contrast to the classic toe-tapping version by The Drifters. In King’s hands, the song plays like an aching companion to The Beach Boys ’ In My Room. 11. Beautiful This is one of the best melodies in a catalog overflowing with them.
