Tonight's American Idol theme of Carole King's songs made me so excited. I remember her so well since I had learnt all the lyrics of her songs while in my teenage years. I remember locking myself in my room and listening to her songs over and over again. So I wasn't surprised that I could remember the songs that were chosen by the 6 finalists for their solo and duet performances.
I don't have a favourite because I think I loved all of her songs. The song choice of James Durbin definitely stirred my heart a little more than the others because it was my personal anthem as a teenager. It seemed to reflect all that I felt when I first fell in love.
Much as I like James Durbin, I still prefer the original version.
These are a selection of the ones I love....
Thank you to all the people who uploaded it to youtube! I've just added them to my playlist!
