Difficulty Level: Beginner Genre: Classic Rock

When Neil Sedaka was only thirteen, he was already being groomed for a career as a classical pianist. One day he was playing in the lobby of the Kenmore Lake Hotel in Livingston Manor, New York, when he caught the ear of his neighbor, Mrs. Greenfield. Mrs. Greenfield suggested that Neil get together with her son, Howie. Soon Howie and Neil were writing a song a day, many of which made the charts. Gary Chester is the drummer on this 1962 hit.
