Singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka signs sheet music from his hit "Run Samson Run"
Sheet Music signed: "Cheers -/Neil/Sedaka" on front cover, 4p, 9x11¾. Sheet Music for "Run Samson Run", Words by Howard Greenfield, Music by Neil Sedaka. ©1960, Aldon Music, Inc. "Run Samson Run" was a Top 30 hit for Sedaka in 1960. It was co-written with Howard Greenfield, with whom Sedaka would collaborate for 20 years. The new firm of Aldon Music, run by Al Nevins and Don Kirshner, had signed Greenfield and Sedaka as a songwriting team and Sedaka as a performer in 1956. Aldon was later sold to Screen Gems. When Greenfield died of AIDS in 1986, Sedaka released the double album, My Friend, a compilation of their works. Trained as a classical pianist, singer/songwriter Neil Sedaka (born in 1939) had a succession of Top 40 hits in the 1950s and 1960s. He had his first Top 10 hit in 1959 with "Oh! Carol" (resulting in Sedaka's first Grammy Award nomination), a tribute to former girlfriend Carole King, a fellow songwriter at the Brill Building. Other top songs include "Calendar Girl" (1961), "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" (1962; a Grammy Award nominated number one song and his biggest hit), "Laughter in the Rain" (1974; another number one hit, this time on Elton John's Rocket label) and "Should've Never Let You Go" (1980; a single from his In the Pocket album). Sedaka, whose well known songs also include "Alice in Wonderland", "Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen", "Next Door to An Angel", "Stairway to Heaven", "Run, Samson, Run" and "Stupid Cupid" (a hit for Connie Francis in 1958), had sold 25 million records worldwide by 1963. He also wrote songs for a long list of other artists, including "Love Will Keep Us Together", a huge hit for the Captain and Tennille. Sedaka still writes and releases his own new music and is a popular concert draw in both the U.S. and internationally. Lightly creased. Worn at lower edge of front cover. Fine condition.
