Cynthia Weil

October 18, 1937, New York, NY

Primarily a lyricist, Weil was aided by husband and partner Barry Mann, who supplied much of the music. With her stories of social commentary and lyrical vignettes that pointed out the hypocrisy of America's class system, Weil is acknowledged as one of the groundbreaking writers who took rock lyrics beyond the moon-june tales of lost romance and puppy love. ~ Allmusic: Cynthia Weil ~ retrieved October 17, 2013 © Allmusic
