Leiber & Stoller


They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway
They say there's always magic in the air

Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil, Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, 'On Broadway'

Jerome “Jerry” Leiber and Mike Stoller were American songwriting and recording partners perhaps best known for their songwriting for Elvis Presley. With Leiber the lyricist and Stoller the composer, the pair wrote or co-wrote over 70 chart hits, including Elvis’s “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock”, amongst several others, writing songs for numerous artsists throughout the 1950s and 60s. Their last major hit production was “Stuck in the Middle With You” by Stealers Wheel, released in 1972 on the band’s debut album. They were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of fame in 1985 and the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 1987. Jerry Lieber died on August the 22nd 2011 from cardio-pulmonary failure.
