In 1971, Carole King wrote the song You’ve Got A Friend. Or better put: the song wrote itself, because Carole King feels the song just came out of nowhere. In the same session, James Taylor recorded the song too and had a bigger hit with it. In the US, it would be number 1 and in the UK number 4. Mary Hopkins was also offered the song, before Taylor recorded it, but she turned the song down. Enjoy
