Top Song 50 Years Ago; #14

The next song to hit the top of the charts in 1962 was Breaking Up Is Hard To Do by Neil Sedaka. The song was written by Neil with Howard Greenfield. They would team up for many hits for Neil and other artists.

The song was on the top of the Cash Box chart for just the week of Aug 5th. It was on the top of the Billboard chart for 2 weeks ending on Aug. 18th.

Neil had a hit with the song all over again in 1975 except that time he made it a slower ballad.

Although Neil’s career has had its ups and down, he is still performing.  You can view his schedule on his official website.
