Carole King’s 1971 album Tapestry is an unparalleled masterpiece of American songwriting. It was tough to pick a single song to represent the album. I narrowed it down to I Feel the Earth Move, It’s Too Late, Beautiful, You’ve Got a Friend, Where You Lead, or Will You Love Me Tomorrow?, which is to say that I hadn’t narrowed it down at all.

In the end, I had to go with So Far Away, only because I find myself humming the tune every time I’m on a trip away from home.

But honestly, you can’t go wrong with Carole King.
