I realized that I couldn’t let October escape me without posting one of my favorite classic songs, the Goffin/King masterpiece “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?”
It was made famous by The Shirelles, who, in 1961, used it to become the first girl group to reach #1 on the Billboard Charts in the USA. Here is their beautiful performance of said song, in a rare clip from the 1960s. Check out the hairstyles and the big smiles!
This song is a classic because the lyrics are genderless, timeless, and unforgettable. It can be sped up or slowed down, like Carole King did on her legendary album Tapestry. Plain and simple, very few songs can beat it.

And this slightly up-tempo version by Linda Ronstadt:
And, as a bonus, a music video I appeared in as a backup dancer, with my ballroom friends Jameson and Emily. What do you think? See if you can find me, I’m the first guy on Olivia’s right when she enters, dancing with Emily (short-ish girl with long brown hair).
