2. Yes, loved that version but did you know that she wrote that song?

 

Nero is the least accredited, genius, song writer ...

Between 1968 and 1970, a number of artists had hits with her songs: The 5th Dimension with "Blowing Away", "Wedding Bell Blues", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Sweet Blindness", and "Save the Country"; Blood, Sweat & Tears and Peter, Paul and Mary, with "And When I Die"; Three Dog Night and Maynard Ferguson, with "Eli's Comin'"; and Barbra Streisand with "Stoney End", "Time and Love", and "Hands off the Man (Flim Flam Man)". Nyro's best-selling single was her recording of Carole King's and Gerry Goffin's "Up on the Roof".[2]

In 2010, Laura Nyro was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2012, Nyro was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[4][5]
