One of the Brill building's staff writer was songwriter Carole King. She wrote 61 hits that charted in making her the most successful female songwriter on the singles charts between 1962 and 2005 surpassing even Hit Writer Bacharach or Dianne Warren.


King is the most successful female songwriter of the latter half of the 20th century in the US, having written or co-written 118 pop hits, all rocketed up the charts in Top 40 and ranking in Billboard
