The "Brill Building Sound" may be the only subgenre of pop music named after a building, for it was in that very building, a former monolith of New York City's Garment District located at 1619 Broadway, where producer Don Kirshner placed the best and brightest songwriters of the Camelot years. They were early-Sixties mainstays, almost all duos, whose very names became emblematic of great pop songwriting: Lieber and Stoller, Goffin and King, Mann and Weil, Bacharach and David, Pomus and Shuman, Sedaka and Greenfield.
