Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Breaking Up Is Hard to do was a big hit for Neil Sadaka in 1962. It was a beautiful melody but, it was a done in a “do wop/bubblegum style” that was popular at the time with teens. Years later he did a blues version with him singing and playing piano in a slow, soulful, blues style. It is absolutely marvelous. I never get tired of this song.

In the first video we have the original from the early 60s. The second video is Neil’s blues version years later. And, the third video is my solo guitar arrangement.
