Neil Sedaka co-wrote this song and recorded a version in 1962 and again in 1975 with the former original release being his most successful reaching #1 on the pop charts. Lenny Welch had success with a much slower arrangement of the song in 1970 and then Sedaka did a similar version in 1976 and hit #1 on the Easy Listening chart. The Partridge Family had a #3 hit in Australia and the UK with1972 release.
Co-partner on many Sedaka songs, Howard greenfield wrote the lyrics and Sedaka wrote the music. The song was released in Dec of 1960 and was a #1 in Canada and Japan and a #3 in Australia and a #4 in the US. It took 26 takes over a three hr period to get the final product.
Neil Sedaka and Carole King were good friends and went to high school together and in 1961, Sedaka released this song. It was pretty close to two songs King had penned which were Take Good Care Of My Baby by Bobby Vee and One Fine Day by The Chiffons. The song reached #6 in the US and #3 in the UK.
Songwriter Phil Cody smoked a joint, fell asleep under a tree and awoke to write the lyrics to this song in about five minutes. The song was a #1 hit in the US in 1974.
Another Sedaka / Greenfield collaboration here which resulted in a #5 hit in late 1962. Sedaka wouldn't see a top ten after this song for 12 years with Laughter In The Rain in 1974.
