I must have been living under a rock - I didn't know that Doc Pomus had written so many of these songs. If you haven't seen this - it is very good.



"Save the Last Dance For Me" and "This Magic Moment" are only two of over 1,000 songs written by Jerome Felder, better known as Doc Pomus. This biographical documentary tells the story of one of the great founders of rock n' roll who took the pop music scene by storm in the late 1950's and 1960's. He wrote, or co-wrote, many of Elvis Presley's hits, as well as turning out material for the Drifters, the Coasters, Ray Charles and even Andy Williams. Although crippled by polio when he was six years old, Pomus didn't allow that handicap to keep him from his love of the Blues and of all kinds of music. The film includes interviews with his family members and many of his friends. Included are readings from his diary by his good friend, Lou Reed.

I'll have a look at that. I only knew the name from seeing him listed as a writer on I Just Can't Stop It when i bought the album. (Can't Get Used To Losing You.)
