Happy # 82 Neil Sedaka

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We say happy birthday to Neil Sedaka who was born in Brooklyn, New York on this day in 1939.

The great Neil Sedaka started a bit before my time.    He was originally interested in classical music but became one of the most successful pop songwriters of the last 50 years.

Sedaka had big hits in the early 1960′s or what we call the time between Elvis and The Beatles.  His 45′s included “Oh Carol”, “Breaking up is hard to do” and “Happy birthday sweet 16″.

Like many artists, Sedaka faded in the 1960′s. They just couldn’t keep up with The Beatles and the so called British Invasion of the US pop charts.

He did have a huge comeback in the mid-1970′s as a performer and songwriter.

He wrote “Love Will Keep Us Together“, a No. 1 hit for Captain and Tennille was the best-selling record of 1975.

Great performer, great songwriter!

It’s hard to pick a favorite. Sedaka did have a flair for writing very romantic songs.   

His songs are now available in a digital format and they sound great.
