Carole King is a defining voice of our generation. We grew up singing her hits, and her influence endures to this day. (There's even a smash musical, "Beautiful," about King's life running on Broadway.) Decades after we first heard them, we still remember every word. Don't believe us? Just take this (not entirely serious) little quiz.

I feel the earth move
1) after my Jello shots.
2) under my feet.
3) because I'm on the treadmill.
4) because I live in California.

It would be so fine to see your face
1) on a Wanted poster at the post office.
2) at my door
3) so I'd better schedule that cataract surgery I've been putting off

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am, I'll
1) friend you on Facebook and follow you on Twitter
2) come running to see you again
3) disconnect the phone and hide under the bed

Come on baby, do the ___ with me.
1) laundry
2) dishes
3) Sunday crossword
4) Loco-motion

Baby it's too late, though we really did try to
1) get away from the hustling crowds
2) talk with a man with a shotgun in his hand
3) make it

There's room enough for two
1) more cat
2) in my new Kia
3) up on the roof

Where you lead I will
1) sing harmony
2) follow
3) not follow, because I wasn't born to follow
4) find a paradise that's trouble-proof

You make me feel like a natural
1) disaster
2) ingredient
3) woman

Something tells me I'm Into something
1) illegal
2) chocolate
3) light and breezy
4) good

You've got a _____
1) lotta nerve
2) refund from the IRS
2) slipped disc
4) friend

Will you still love me ____
1) when I'm 64?
2) tomorrow?
3) after you see the dent I put in your car?

One Fine Day, you're going to want me ____
1) for your girl
2) for your bowling team
3) to sell those old 45s on Ebay
4) to go see "Beautiful" with you

You aced it, right? Not only that, but you're probably going to have Carole's music in your head for the rest of the day.

You're welcome.
