ABOUT

Burt Freeman Bacharach (/ˈbækəræk/ BAK-ə-rak; born May 12, 1928) is an American composer, songwriter, record producer, pianist, and singer. A six-time Grammy Award winner and three-time Academy Award winner, he is known for his popular hit songs and compositions from the late 1950s through the 1980s, many with lyrics written by Hal David. Most of Bacharach & David hits were written specifically for and performed by Dionne Warwick, but earlier associations (from 1957–63) saw the composing duo work with Marty Robbins, Perry Como, Gene McDaniels, and Jerry Butler. Following the initial success of these collaborations, Bacharach went on to write hits for Gene Pitney, Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, Jackie DeShannon, Bobbie Gentry, Tom Jones, Herb Alpert, B. J. Thomas, The Carpenters, among numerous other artists. As of 2014, Bacharach had written 73 US and 52 UK Top 40 hits. Songs that he co-wrote which have topped the Billboard Top 100 include "This Guy's in Love with You" (1968), "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" (1969), "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" (1981), "Songbird" (1986), "Silhouette" (1988), "Don't Make Me Wait for Love" (1986), "Going Home" (1989), "The Look of Love", (1967) and "On My Own" (1986).
