J. S. Felder (1925-1991)

Jerome Solon Felder: Lungenkrebs. Zusammen mit seinem kongenialen Songwritingpartner und Pianisten Mort Shuman bildete Doc Pomus in den späten Fifties und frühen Sixties eine veritable Hitfabrik und schrieb für damalige Stars wie Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Dion and the Belmonts, The Searchers, The Drifters oder Ray Charles. “Now my room has got two windows but the sunshine never comes thru/You know it’s always dark and dreary since I broke off, baby, with You!/I live on a lonely avenue/My little girl wouldn’t say, “I do“/Well, I feel so sad and blue/And it’s all because of you/I could cry, I could cry, i could cry,/I could die, I could die, I could die,/Because I live on a lonely avenue, lonely avenue/(Now my) covers they feel like lead and my pillow it feels like Stone,/Well, I’ve tossed and turned so ev’ry night/I’m not used to being alone! (…)” RAY CHARLES, Lonely Avenue; SONIC BOOM, Lonely Avenue
