There are many songs from the past that I really like but I usually identify them with the performer and not the songwriter. Hence the name Gerry Goffin meant nothing to me until I read last week that he had died and they listed some of the songs he had written and they are really great.
Here is an article about six of his best songs. Two of them are among my favorites. One is Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow by The Shirelles.
The other is Up on the Roof by The Drifters.
