Behind the Music
This little snippet from Pandora was just too cute to miss…
Little Eva Narcissus Boyd was a babysitter for Carole King and Gerry Goffin when the songwriting team was inspired to write “Locomotion,” a song based on a dance that Eva would do around the house. Eva also got to sing on their demo, which impressed Don Kirshner enough to release it as it was. One of the greatest girl group hits, “Locomotion,” hit number one in 1962; the follow-up, “Keep Your Hands Off My Baby,” was also written by Goffin-King.
