I Don't Need Sunny Skies

I loved this when I was little and I love it forty years later.

Only truly great pop songs go on giving in this way.

It was a demo too!

Carole King - 'It Might As Well Rain Until September' (1962)


  1. How did you know this was exactly what I needed to hear this morning! cheers

  2. One of my earliest musical memories is playing this record. I used to be fascinated by the ending.

  3. I was about to say 'It feels like it's always be there, doesn't it?' - but since I was born in 1965 - it has!

  4. Yes - an inspired pick and no mistake. Treat yersen to some jelly babies.

    This was in the charts when I was born and, like so many folk, I have a great affection for it.

    The girl was something of a genius for one so young.

  5. Indeed Dickie. Age when she wrote this = 20 (Gerry Goffin = 23).
