Biography

Larry Santos (born 2 June 1941, Oneonta, New York) is an American singer-songwriter. He wrote tunes for several American pop bands in the 1960s, including the 1963 #3 hit “Candy Girl” for The Four Seasons. In the mid-Sixties, he recorded a few singles as part of a group called The Madisons, as well as under his own name. In 1969, he released his first debut pop album, “Just A Man” that features 2 pop songs, written by himself, entitled, “You Got Me Where You Want Me” and the title cut. In 1970, he released his second pop album, “Morning Sun” that features 2 pop songs, “Now That I Have Found You” and the title track. It also includes his pop cover versions of “Both Sides Now”, performed by Judy Collins, “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, originally performed by Simon & Garfunkel, “Get Together”, originally performed by The Youngbloods, “Sweet Caroline”, originally performed by Neil Diamond and “I Keep It Hid “, originally written and performed by Jimmy Webb.
In 1974 he co-wrote “Just Me And You” with Bill Lane, Roger Nichols, Barry Mann, Dan Yessian and Cynthia Weil for the pilot episode from “Hot Fudge Show”, made from 1974, which would be for Joyce Berry & Laurie Maitland to record in 1985 for “Hooray For Friendship” whereas Seymour, the puppet sang the short version of that upbeat pop song with the second verse omitted with one of those Hot Fudge friends when they sang the same notes together without harmonizing with each other. Santos’ music falls into the genre of blue-eyed soul-inflected pop; he released three albums in the 1970s and scored one pop hit single, produced by Don Davis, “We Can’t Hide it Anymore”, which peaked at #36 in the U.
