Petula Clark and Tony Hatch is another. Irwin Levine, Larry Brown and Tony Orlando is another.
The Everly Brothers and Boudleaux Bryant, and I could go on and on. And anybody who sings a Carole Bayer Sager song. To me she is incredible. Once, someone handed me a big sack of sheet music and asked me to pick the songs I liked best. I chose 11 songs and every one of them was a Carole Bayer Sager song, and I didn't realize that all of them were when I selected them. I think she's marvelous.
Disc: The marriage of Neil, Howard and Connie seemed to be a good one.
Connie: It was. I recorded Neil's first song for Donnie Kirshner. Also Bobby Darin gave Splish Splash to Kirshner. Sadly, we got very little in royalties from Donnie for the things he did. We had a 50-50 publishing agreement between us. Bobby did too. Later, Bobby got very angry with him and never spoke to him again. The royalties were ridiculous - imagine getting only $8,000 for worldwide sales of Stupid Cupid. That was the end of our split publishing agreement.
Disc: 1961 began with the release of the title song
from your first film, Where the Boys Are. Did you
like this one?
