Legendary songwriter Cynthia Weil passed away last week at age 82. She’s most well known for writing pop classics like The Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin’ with husband Barry Mann.
The duo also wrote "Dolly Parton's "Here You Come Again," Chaka Khan's "Through the Fire" and George Benson's "On Broadway."
Cynthia once talked about Dolly Parton being grateful that “Here You Come Again’ introduced her to pop audiences. Cynthia said, "We didn't know Dolly when we wrote the song and we never knew how she felt about it. But we've been in touch since, and Dolly's assistant asked us for some material for her. And we sent some things. They weren't right but she wrote us a very sweet letter, saying, 'You guys wrote my first million-seller and I'll always be grateful to you and you started my career in the pop world.'"
Her daughter Jenn Mann said Cynthia passed away last Thursday night. (TMZ)
