Recently nominated for entry into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Artie Resnick and Kenny Young came out of the Brill Building songwriting scene. Together they co-wrote the Drifters' "Under the Boardwalk" and Ronnie Dove's "One Kiss for Old Times Sake." Resnick went on to co-write the Rascals' "Good Lovin'" and was also a member of the bubblegum rock trio the Third Rail of "Run, Run, Run" fame. Young had his own songwriting and performing success as well, penning hits for Herman's Hermits and Quincy Jones and recording solo and in bands including Fox and Yellow Dog.
Key songs in the Resnick/Young catalog include "Good Lovin'" (Artie Resnick/Rudy Clark), "I've Got Sand In My Shoes," "Little Bit Of Heaven," "One Kiss For Old Times Sake" and "Under the Boardwalk."
Artie has been writing over the years and Broadjam features some of his favorite recent songs. To check out Artie's silly cartoon music and videos, go to youtube.com and search for "Scaree Tales" ("Igor" and "The Mummy").
"Anna Nicole" is my newest song, released by me and my band Enquiring Minds. It's appalling, funny, compassionate (I hope) and juvenile and it was a heck of a lot of fun to write and record. I wrote it with my co-writer Michael Shorr and my wife too. Check it out!
