Take this musical audio tour through the pages of Sheila Weller's best-selling book Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon and the Journey of a Generation.
The book is filled with references to all the songs and music that influenced these three women, as well as the music from fellow artists whose paths intersected with them along the way. While reading Girls Like Us, my curiousity about many of the songs / music / bands mentioned led me to look them up online and listen to clips of the music. I found it so engaging and educational that I started this website to "share the journey" with fellow music lovers.
"This site is a live museum of what we all heard growing up in the baby boomer generation. It's a perfect companion to the book - I love it!" Sheila Weller
Page numbers refer to the page in book where the music is referenced. The text printed is a tiny portion of the story being told in Girls Like Us and isn't intended to be a complete storyline on it's own.
