Doc Pomus!
« on: September 17, 2010, 05:34:09 PM »
So, I might be a little slow and this might have been posted before, but I was just browsing through a Ray Charles Transcription book of mine, and I noticed a song called "Lonely Avenue" by Doc Pomus that he was covering.

Thought I'd bring up this interesting tid bit in case anyone didn't know.

Come pick me up, I've landed.

The songwriting team of Doc Pomus and Mort Schuman is responsible for lots of songs you  (should) know:

Teenager in Love
Save the Last Dance For Me
This Magic Moment
Little Sister
Suspicion (referenced in the song Doc Pomus on Lonely Avenue)
Viva Las Vegas
 and lots more.

Incidentally, Doc Pomus is my favorite song on Lonely Avenue.

THis is a great goddam song. Made all the more interesting when you read up a little on Doc Pomus himself.

If you've listened to the leak that's fine just don't say anything please.

Aw, you don't come to a Ben Folds message board to not talk about the music. Leaks are a reality you have to accept. If you don't want to hear about the leak, avoid the board until next week.
