Carole King is having a pretty terrific week: The legendary 70-year-old singer/songwriter was finally awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame just yesterday, and tonight she'll be honored at a Hollywood fundraiser called "A Celebration of Carole King and Her Music" (for Paul Newman's Painted Turtle Camp) where talents like Alicia Keys, John Legend, Jack Nicholson (?!), and Katy Perry will toast her.

My God, I could not love Carole King more. If you don't Tapestry, her 1971 blockbuster that I just crowned the greatest female solo album ever to sell 10 million records, you're a traitor to the human race. But it's less likely that you own Carole's other albums, which feature so, so many fabulous songs. Here a bunch that I think you'll love. (Some are more familiar than others.)

"Sweet Seasons"

Already weeping! "Sweet Seasons" is a classic example of Carole's charm and sincerity paired with a winning melody. »
