From taking us "Up on the Roof" to imploring us all to "Do the Locomotion,"
one lyricist captured the feeling of being young and in love, curious about the world, even from the perspective of a "Natural Woman," his gift for words has withstood the test of time and will last as long as there is music playing over the airwaves or via any other medium.
I'm proud to sing his lament to this day, which gave the Animals one of our biggest hits in the mid-sixties...
"When you complain, and criticize
I feel I'm nothing in your eyes..... RIP Gerry Goffin
