Will You Love Me Tomorrow”, also known as “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. It was originally recorded in 1960 by the Shirelles, who took their single to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 1960, the American girl group the Shirelles released the first version of the song as Scepter single 1211, with “Boys” on the B-side. This version of the song, with session musicians Paul Griffin on piano and Gary Chester on drums, as of 2009 was ranked as the 162nd greatest song of all time, as well as the best song of 1960, by Acclaimed Music. The song later appeared on the soundtracks of Michael Apted’s Stardust and Emile Ardolino’s Dirty Dancing.
Bertell Dache, a black demo singer for the Brill Building lyricists, recorded an answer song entitled “Not just Tomorrow, But Always”. The Satintones, an early Motown group, also recorded an answer song called “Tomorrow and Always,” which used the same melody as the original but initially neglected to credit King and Goffin. Following a threat of litigation, later pressings of the record included proper credit. Eventually, it was withdrawn and replaced with a different song. In 1971 Carole King, the co-writer of the song, recorded a version of “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” for her landmark studio album Tapestry, with Joni Mitchell and James Taylor on background vocals. The song became a feature of King’s live shows. Taylor recreated his part during their joint arena-based Troubadour Reunion Tour of 2010.
Blankes and Copeland dance to the song in the Blue Oyster Bar. In the 2013 Broadway Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, the song is featured in part four times: once during its writing, once during King recording a demo of it, then with the Shirelles performing it, and then King singing and playing it later during an especially bad time in her marriage with Goffin. No other song is featured as frequently in the musical. Brenda Lee released her version in 1961 as a single. Helen Shapiro recorded a version for her 1962 album ‘Tops’ with Me.
