Neil Sedaka’s 5 most popular quotes

  • I knew I had a remarkable voice, but I was embarrassed because it was so high. But when I sang at my bar mitzvah, the rabbi was in tears. He said to my parents, ‘He must become a cantor in the synagogue,’ but my mother said, ‘No, he’s going to be a concert pianist.’
  • ‘Love Will Keep Us Together’ was a combination of three different singing styles – Al Green, the Beach Boys, and Diana Ross. I loved all these people, and I put their singing styles together and wrote that tune.
  • If you have a passion for something, never be discouraged by anyone.
  • I remember Pavarotti telling me, ‘Oh, Neil, after seventy, the voice is going to go.’ But I’ve been lucky. You almost have to learn how to sing all over again. You use your diaphragm more. You have to choose the notes and pace yourself.
  • My teachers said, ‘Always keep a Beethoven sonata under your fingers.’ I always have. I still play chamber music, and I always play classical.
