Cynthia Weil R.I.P.

Cynthia Weil, a Grammy-winning lyricist of notable range and endurance who enjoyed a decades-long partnership with husband Barry Mann and helped write “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,” (The most played song of the 20th century) “On Broadway,” “Walking in the Rain” and dozens of other hits, has died at the age of 82. 

Weil’s daughter, Dr. Jenn Mann, said that the songwriter died Thursday at her home in Beverly Hills, California, “surrounded by her family.” 

Mann, the couple’s only child, declined to cite a specific cause of death. 

Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, married in 1961, were one of popular music’s most successful teams 

“I grew up around a lot of music and two incredible, brilliant, creative geniuses,” Jenn Mann said. 

“My parents inspired each other to write great songs. My mom always said that when things were good they had each other, and when things weren’t as good they had their music.” 

Here is "You've lost that loving feeling," performed by The King of Music himself.
