Carole King’s album, Tapestry became one of the best selling albums of all time. She released the album in 1971. While she was attending college she founded a songwriting partnership with college friend Garry Goffin. During this time she wrote such songs as, “Don’t Bring Me Down,” by the Animals. She also wrote the song “Chains” which was used by the Cookies and later on used by the Beatles.
