“There are songs that I’ve written that feel like strangers to me,” writes award-winning lyricist Carole Bayer Sager in THEY’RE PLAYING OUR SONG (October 18, 2016/$28.00 hardcover). “And then there are the songs that define me, that remind me why I wrote in the first place. My best songs made people feel connected, better, hopeful. Even a shared sadness can help to heal someone who’s feeling completely alone. And that someone was often me.” For five decades, Sager has been among the most admired and successful songwriters at work, responsible for her lyrical contributions to some of the most popular songs in the English language, including “Nobody Does It Better,” “A Groovy Kind of Love,” “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” and the theme from the movie Arthur, “The Best That You Can Do” (about getting caught between the moon and New York City). She has collaborated with (and written for) a dizzying number of stars, including Peter Allen, Ray Charles, Celine Dion, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Clint East
