RIP Burt Bacharach.....
One of the most influential figures in popular music history.
So many songs to choose from.
Post a selection.

One of the great songwriting partnerships - Burt with Hal David.

We have a couple 'Best of' Cds (yes, still got them!) and they get a pretty high rotation.

Dione Warwick sang a heap of their tunes, along with many other well knowns incl Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Tom Jones, Carpenters

His music will live on for a long time yet.

Couldn't agree more... easily one of the best. Got me thinking...

Synonymous with many huge hits: Bacharach/David, Lennon/McCartney, Jagger/Richards, Hall/Oates, Holland/Dozier/Holland... Neil Sedaka, Barry Gibb and Neil Diamond also deserve a wrap as great individual song writers. And let's not forget Neil Finn.
