Brill Building (genre)

Brill Building (also known as Brill Building pop or the Brill Building sound)[1] is a subgenre of pop music[1] that took its name from the Brill Building in New York City, where numerous teams of professional songwriters penned material for girl groups and teen idols during the early 1960s.[2] The term has also become a metonym for the period in which those songwriting teams flourished.[7] In actuality, most hits of the mid-1950s and early 1960s were written elsewhere.[7]
