Sedaka and Greenfield

Neil Sedaka interview

By Simon Barber on October 10, 2012 — 1 min read

Although I claimed that I don’t blog about the individual episodes of my songwriting podcast, there are sometimes exceptions to that rule, and the current episode is one such instance. Episode 25 features an interview with Brill Building veteran singer-songwriter and pianist Neil Sedaka.

Neil is of course the pop architect of songs like ‘Oh! Carol’, ‘Stupid Cupid’, ‘Calendar Girl’, ‘Breaking Up is Hard To Do’, ‘Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen’, ‘Where the Boys Are’, ‘Amarillo’, ‘Solitaire’ and ‘Laughter in the Rain’ among many other classics.

In the interview, Neil talks in detail about his writing process and also discusses songs from his new acoustic solo piano record, The Real Neil.

Hope you enjoy it. If you haven’t already, you can subscribe in iTunes to get future episodes automatically.
