Burt Bacharach

Burt Bacharach is one of the most important composers of pop music in the 20th century. His sophisticated yet breezy productions virtually define adult pop during the 1960s. Bacharach's first hit came in 1957 when Marty Robbins took "The Story of My Life" to number one in England. The single was also notable for its co-composer, Hal David, who became Bacharach's songwriting partner on most of his big hits. The team followed with Perry Como's "Magic Moments," another UK chart-topper. At an arranging session, he found the singer who became the ultimate vehicle for his songs: Dionne Warwick. Warwick was the recipient of 15 Top 40 singles from 1962 to 1968 (including the Top Tens "Walk on By," "I Say a Little Prayer," and "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?"). The duo also contributed film scores to "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," winning two Oscars. The '70s looked bright for Bacharach, as the Carpenters took "(They Long to Be) Close to You" to number one in 1970. Bacharach's next hit came in 1981 when he collaborated with Christopher Cross, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen on the Oscar-winning "Arthur's Theme." Bacharach married Bayer Sager, and they wrote Roberta Flack's hit "Making Love," as well as "Heartlight" for Neil Diamond. 1986 saw two number ones: "That's What Friends Are For" and the duet by Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald, "On My Own." In 1998, he was celebrated at an all-star concert at Radio City Music Hall, which later formed the basis for the LP One Amazing Night. In early 2009, Bacharach worked with Italian soul singer Karima Ammar and produced her debut single, Come in Ogni Ora, a number four hit. Bacharach continues to record and tour the world.
