Burt Bacharach R.I.P.

16th February 2023

On February 8th we lost another music legend, the composer Burt Bacharach.

Bacharach’s music is often categorised as ‘Easy Listening’, yet the use of Jazz-style chords, and classically-influenced arrangements elevate his songs, making him one of the highest regarded song-writers of the late Twentieth Century.

His influence is ubiquitous; film soundtracks, adverts … even Oasis used his photo on their debut LP in 1994 (it can be seen in the bottom left).

I have musician friends who play all types of styles; they would all give their eye-teeth to write a Burt Bacharach song.

I’ll end this tribute with a link to two of my favourites.

Goodbye Burt … thanks for the music.
