Very sad. I was a big fan of their songs. If you haven't already, see the movie, Grace of my Heart. It is a highly fictionalized account of a songwriting romantic duo who are just like King and Goffin. I haven't seen the currently running Broadway chow.

RIP.

Saw Beautiful only a few weeks ago. Wow! King and Goffin were a stupendous songwriting team - I never realized how many songs for which they are responsible.

Some of the songs written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin that I can think of just off the top of my head:

Up On The Roof
Don't Say Nothin' Bad About My Baby
Take Good Care of My Baby
The Loco-Motion
Pleasant Valley Sunday
(Something Tells Me) I'm Into Something Good
(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
Hey Girl
Some Kind of Wonderful
One Fine Day
