Yup – a music post.
I don’t have that much to say about Jerry Leiber, other than he co-wrote some of the most recognizable foundation songs of rock-and-roll. So many luminaries of rock – from Elvis to The Beatles, to Lady Gaga and Green Day – have plied the Leiber & Stoller catalog for the perfect tune.
And they certainly wrote many that instantly job one’s memory.
Here are a few to enjoy:
“Stand By Me”
Anybody else like Leiber’s stuff?
Also, RIP Nick Ashford – that’s two halves of two hit-making songwriting teams. Very sad.
