Songwriting: The Great Pretender



The Great Pretender lyrics (The Platters) - the lyrics of one of the most impressive 1950s rock/RnB ballads, written by Buck Ram (he said that he wrote the lyrics in Las Vegas, in the Flamingo Hotel washroom!)

John Gilliland talks about The Platters; interview with Buck Ram (November 21, 1907 – January 1, 1991).
