Biography

Neil Sedaka (born 13 March 1939 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American pop singer, pianist, and songwriter often associated with the Brill Building era of songwriting. He teamed up with Howard Greenfield to write many major hit songs for himself and others.

Sedaka wrote his 1959 hit “Oh! Carol” about his then-girlfriend, Carol Klein, later to become Carole King. In 1963, King released a humorous answer entitled “Oh Neil”.

The Laughter In the Rain Songfacts says Sedaka’s hits dried up when The Beatles arrived, but then he teamed up with the lyricist Philip Cody and had a a number 1 hit with “Laughter In The Rain.” It re-ignited Sedaka’s career and he had 6 more Top-40 hits in America by 1977.

Sedaka’s voice is in the tenor range.
