This song was in the movie running on empty with river Phoenix

Very good song. Always like JT!
I'm 19 and love his music, older music catches your feelings in a way that new music simply can't.
In the least liklihood that kids that were at the Somerset Youth Shelter back in the late 70's ever read this, remember YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND yes you do.
Sidation...

My mom told me every time I hear this song think of her. She passed away, so when I hear this beautiful song it is as though she is talking to me.
@slutwife - Taylor is still alive as of April 24, 2013. He performed on that day at the memorial service of slain MIT cop Sean Collier. Collier was killed by the two Boston Marathon bombers.

Great to hear JT. THE POET OF THE 70's
Sweet Baby James.....No t h i n g like James Taylor....
Love this song- but interesting that he did not write it. Carole King did.
What a tune.. Always remember this beautiful tune along with Carole King whose name is so synonymous with this one. Beautiful rendition by this duo. How amazing was that!!

Yeah, "disco influences"? ! ? ! ? That's hilarious and ridiculous.
