The song sheet is an abridged version for BUG.
The idea of a "calendar girl" comes from pin-up calendars. Pin-up models are an old media form common to North America throughout the 20th century, starting from about 1890 and panning out about in the 1970s. One of the very first music videos was the one Sedaka made for "Calendar Girl." Sedaka's video was a standalone production made for video jukeboxes that were showing up around Europe. The company that made these machines, Scopitone, commissioned the videos so they would have something to show. Sedaka's was one of the most intricate, and certainly one of the most entertaining. Scopitones didn't didn't show up in America until 1964.
Since Neil Sadaka's music career began in 1957, he has sold millions of records as an artist and has written or co-written over 500 songs for himself and others, collaborating mostly with lyricists Howard Greenfield and Phil Cody.
