Doc Pomus

Recommended Posts

Over the years I've heard of Doc Pomus as a prolific songwriter in the "Tin Pan Alley" tradition but never knew much about him. Recently I've become a little more acquainted with some of his music. For those who may need a little memory jog some of his songs include: This Magic Moment, Can't Get Used to Losing You, Viva Las Vegas, and Turn Me Loose as well as many film and TV songs. Just curious if any of you have interesting Doc annecdotes or maybe just a favorite song? It seems to me he's a very overlooked but important contributor to popular American music in the later half of the 20th century.

Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman are some of the greatest songwriters ever... with Geoffin-King, Lennon-McCartney, David-Bacharach, Leiber-Stoller, etc.

Here you have some info about him.

"Little Sister" is one of my favorite songs...
