Cynthia Weil & Barry Mann

Prolific wife and husband writing team responsible for the Righteous Brothers "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin" and "Soul & Inspiration", The Drifters "On Broadway", The Animals "We Gotta Get Out of This Place", Paul Revere & The Raiders "Hungry" and "Kicks" and many more of the 60's touchstone records. One of the most successful Brill Building partnerships in history.

Qualifications: 7 - Solid Choice

Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil

Another of the husband-wife writing tandems that dominated the early 60's Brill Building rock scene, along with Barry and Greenwich as well as the already inducted Gerry Goffin and Carole King. Not wanting to be accused of ignoring the equally talented Mann & Weil, the Hall decided to send the two pairs in together which should clear the slate for awhile and allow them to focus on other areas. The duo's hits include the most played song in rock history, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin" along with countless others for everyone from the Drifters to the Animals that defined their era.
