I wonder if it was intentional that the writer's name wasn't mentioned. Since he has a long string of songs cut and success perhaps he was perfectly fine with simply collecting the pay check. I've usually found that pro writers with significant success in their past are far more interested in the checks than the credit. That's always been a dynamic in the industry. Artists get the attention.. writers get the cash. For most writers that's a good deal. Artists rarely get a fraction of the money for a hit that the writers get. I know quite a few band members in famous bands, who weren't the song writers and sure wish they could trade that moment in the spotlight for a lifetime of residual income.
