Hal David, rest in peace

You'll remember Hal David wrote many very famous songs with Burt Bacharach.............HERE is a story about his passing today.    Bacharach/David didn't write music I absolutely love (I had to sing too much of it in clubs and for private parties for a long time and how many times can you sing "Raindrops Keep Falling On Your Head" and "Close to You"?!), but I couldn't let his passing go by on geeeeZ.  ON the other hand............"Don't Make Me Over," ''Walk On By,"  ''Anyone Who Has a Heart," ''You'll Never Get to Heaven"....delicious songs.  I particularly adore "Don't Make Me Over" and "Anyone Who Has a Heart".........We should all be grateful to Hal David for many hours of happy listening.

I'm only happy when Barbra Streisand LEAVES the room.

"L.A. is a great big freeway.
Put a hundred down and buy a car.
In a week, maybe two, they'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years. How quck they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas"

Always enjoyed that song along with "Walk on By".

they're mostly waiting tables, but it's a clever lyric.

Walk on By is fabulous but DON'T MAKE ME OVER breaks my heart..it's so beautiful

Radical, I am, too!
