Neil Sedaka - Voice Your Choice

Neil Sedaka was born March 13, 1939 and began studying piano in elementary school. He was on the path of pursuing classical music when he was in Lincoln High School until he met Howard Greenfield. From then on it was classical music's loss and pop music great gain! They formed a songwriting team, with Neil composing the music and Howard as the lyricist, and their highly successful partnership lasted over 20 years. They scored ten Top Twenty hits, six of them in the Top Ten and one #1!

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice spotlights Neil Sedaka with two songs from the great Sedaka/Greenfield writing partnership, Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen and Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.

Come to the Voice Your Choice page and make your selection. The song with the most votes will be played in Hour 3 of next week's show.
