Baby Boomer Thursdays: Neil Sedaka's Birthday

March 13, 2008 marks the 59th birthday of Neil Sedaka, certainly one of the most prolific songwriters in rock and roll history. Wikipedia informs us about some of his hits:
The best-known Billboard Hot 100 hits of his early career are "The Diary" (#14, 1958), "Oh! Carol" (#9, 1959), "You Mean Everything to Me" (#17, 1960), "Calendar Girl" (#4, 1960), "Little Devil" (#11, 1961) "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen" (#6, 1961), "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do" (#1, 1962), and "Next Door To An Angel" (#5, 1962).
Sedaka also had a hand in best selling songs for many other artists including Connie Francis who benefited from the likes of "Stupid Cupid" (#15 in 1958), "Fallin'" (#30 in 1958), and "Where the Boys Are" (#4 in 1961).
