This week share a favourite song or piece of music that helps you relax, or just share a favourite piece of music or song with us.
American singer/songwriter Carole King wrote Up On The Roof with Gerry Goffin in 1962. It was originally recorded by The Drifters.
Carole King (with James Taylor on acoustic guitar) included it on her first solo album Writer, released in 1970.

Up On The Roof was on the set list.
It was magical…
