Gerry Goffin: The Man Who Made Teen Romance Grow Up
When rock and roll was still in its infancy, dominated by the dynamic of puppy love, Gerry Goffin was the lyricist who helped bring teen romance into the modern era, penning lyrics to "Brill Building" hits that dealt with issues of dominance, gender roles, materialism, and sexual power.
