3/14/1991 (26 years ago today) – He was born in Brooklyn, New York, and his real name was Jerome Solon Felder — songwriting superstar Doc Pomus passed away from lung cancer on this date at age 65. Along with writing partner Mort Shuman, they churned out hit after hit after hit for Elvis Presley, The Drifters and The Searchers — honestly, it’s hard to imagine the history of American Top 40 radio without such classics as “A Teenager In Love”, “Save The Last Dance For Me”, “This Magic Moment”, “Little Sister”, “Suspicion”, “Surrender” and “(Marie’s the Name) His Latest Flame”. On his own, Doc also wrote for Ray Charles, Lavern Baker and Big Joe Turner. Immortal stuff.
