A cute pick-me-up tune. I love singing along with Neil Sedaka.  :)

Dig this, Kathleen!  In the studio recording of Love Will Keep Us Together, Toni Tennille paid tribute to Neil Sedaka by singing "Sedaka is back" during her vocal outro...

 :)  I never would have caught that if you hadn't pointed it out, Barry. (And I heard that song a lot in the 70s.)

I read recently that they just got divorced. Sad.  :(

I never imagined that would happen.  As the adage goes, they made such beautiful music together.

But that was nice of Toni Tennille to recognize Neil Sedaka the way she did.  He was a casualty of the British invasion and it took him a while to come back.

Neil Sedaka had some more bad luck in the 1960s.  He originally recorded It Hurts To Be In Love...


It Hurts To Be In Love ( demo, previously unreleased) Neil Sedaka - Definitive Collection CD




But because he didn't record the song in the RCA studio as required by his contract, he had to re-record it and the results were not as good.  The song was given to Gene Pitney who took the song to #7 in 1964.  Neil Sedaka's arrangement, musical score and even his own background vocals were used in Gene Pitney's version...

Really interesting information on Neil Sedaka, Barry; thanks for sharing it. And you're right; it was nice of Toni Tennille to recognize him.
