366 Songs 132: Beautiful

And talking about Carole King (I was, last entry, really), here’s what’s probably my favorite King song, and it’s all about the sound of the chorus, really; the lyrics are pretty trite, but the way it all sounds – the build of the melody, the thudding momentum pushing forward, the way that the chorus pretty much falls apart at the end… I love it so much, and wish that it belonged to a better song, if that makes sense. Same with the fade out, starting at 2:33. Why couldn’t the rest of the song be that good…?
