Neil Sedaka wurde am 13. März 1939 im New Yorker Stadtteil Brooklyn als Sohn eines Taxifahrers türkischer Abstammung geboren. Die Eltern erkannten bald, wie talentiert der junge Neil war und sorgten dafür, dass er eine gründliche Musikausbildung bekam. Ein berühmter Pianist sollte er nach dem Wunsch seiner Eltern werden. So besuchte er nicht nur die New Yorker Lincoln High School, sondern durfte gleichzeitig an der Juillard School of Music Klavierunterricht nehmen. Dass die Solistenträume der Eltern eine reale Grundlage in Neils Begabung hatten, bewies die Auszeichnung des weltbekannten Pianisten Artur Rubinstein, der ihn 1956 zum besten Pianisten aller New Yorker Hochschulen wählte. Obwohl ihn Rubinstein für ein Klavierkonzert im Radio auswählte, waren seine Ambitionen im Bereich der klassischen Musik begrenzt. Die Musik wollte er nicht verlassen, aber er entschied sich für die Musik seiner Generation - die Popmusik. So gründete er 1961 die Gruppe "The Tokens", die alsbald Riesenhits landete.

Neil Sedaka begann seine Karriere in den 50er Jahren als Komponist von leicht verdaulichen Schlagern wie z.B. „Stupid Cupid“, mit dem Connie Francis 1958 eine Nummer 1 hatte. Ende der 50er Jahre trat er auch als Sänger in Erscheinung. Stücke wie „Oh Carol“, „Calender Girl“, Little Devil“, „Happy Birthday Sweet 16 oder „Breaking Up Is Hard To Do“ machten ihn auch in Europa zum Star. Mit dem Aufkommen der britischen Beatinvasion ließ der Erfolg für Neil nach und er zog sich für ein paar Jahre aus dem Rampenlicht zurück. 1973 tauchte er wieder auf und hatte zunächst in England mit „Standing on the inside“ und „A little lovin‘“ zwei Top 20 Erfolge. In Amerika klappe es Ende 1974 mit dem Album „Laughter In The Rain“ und der gleichnamigen Single. Es war wie in alten Zeiten, seine Platten waren gefragt. „Laugher In The Rain“ blieb nicht sein einziger Spitzenreiter im Jahre 1975. Bis zur nächsten Nummer 1 „Bad Blood“ hatte er mit „The Immigrant“ (Platz 42) und „That’s When The Music Takes Me“ (Platz 29) weitere Hits. Aber auch als Autor war er erfolgreich, daß amerikanische Duo Captain & Tennille landete mit seinen Kompositionen „Love Will Keep Us Together“ (1975) und „Lonely Night (Angel Face)“ zwei Nummer 1 Hit in den USA. In den nächsten Jahren ließ er es ruhiger angehen, deshalb verschwand sein Name langsam aus den Hitparaden. Eine Neuaufnahme von „Breaking Up Is Hard To Do“ (Platz 10 1976), „Love In The Shadows“ (Platz 22 1976), „Steppin‘ Out“ (Platz 37 1976), „You Gotta Make Your Own Sunshine“ (Platz 64 1976), „Amarillo“ (Platz 61 1977) und „Should’ve Never Let You Go“ – ein Duett mit seiner Tochter Dara – (Platz 19 1980) waren seine weiteren Hits.
