Fantasy is an album by American singer-songwriter Carole King, released in 1973.
This time King wrote all the songs herself. At the time of its release, it only
reached #6 on the Billboard album chart, but has remained highly regarded by her
fans over the ensuing decades. One of the tracks of the album is a song called
"Haywood" which is about drug addiction.
The Spanish language track "Corazn" (the Spanish word for "heart," also used as
a term of endearment, as in this song's lyrics) was a moderate hit single from t
he album,

as was "Believe in Humanity." The flip side of the latter single, "You Light Up
My Life"
(not the Debby Boone hit), charted separately from its A-side.
All songs composed and arranged by Carole King
