Carole King – So Far Away / 1971

carole king 1971

In 1971, with the coaxing of friend James Taylor, she released her legendary solo album Tapestry which produced four number one singles, & remained number one on the album charts for 15 straight weeks. It’s the longest amount of time any female solo artist’s album remained at the top of the charts. The album stayed on the charts for six years & has now sold well over 25 million copies. King has won four Grammy awards & is a member of the songwriters section of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Broken Bells – “Holding on for Life” / 2013

Broken Bells_Holding On For Life

Perfectly in line with the probable throwback theme of After the Disco, “Holding on for Life” is catchy, dance-worthy and brings out the best falsetto Mercer has to offer. Remarkably reminiscent of Barry Gibb, the chorus repetitiously soars over the reliable bass-line. Throw in the late-track, guitar breakdown and all of the Broken Bells staples are there.
