Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5nIgUdWQug Chuck Jackson- Keep forgettin. 140 onwards very Bacharachish it sounds like Dionne on background vocals. I truly believe Burt had a hand in this and just wasn't credited.

Most people knows the Jazz influence, the latin, and most def the Brazilian influence(Jo...

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

Chiffons one fine day has a similar rythm section to Jay and the Americans Look in my eyes Maria which has a super composer collabo of Bacharach/David and Lieber/Stoller. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvyOqKhKWQ4 Chiffons- One Fine Day https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mmt2p-VqWpg Jay and the Americ...

Re: Need help trying to remember a song

Once again I solved my own riddle. I hate when this happens. The song is called Remember me by the Earls https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL_gRZeqhjY. Its a Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil song. There is also a Chiffon version both groups have Bronx roots just like me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnRa002...

Steve Lawrence produced by Teddy Randazzo another great Bacharach contemporary. This song sounds like a replica of Jack Jones wives and lovers.

Re: Need help trying to remember a song

Speaking of Honeybees ran into this classic I havent heard since I was a kid when my folks would play the oldies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG45zmJ ... 4I&index=2

I always thought it was the Supremes lol sounds like Holland Dozier knockoff but its a Goffin/King classic.

Re: Need help trying to remember a song

Blue you posted the wrong link. I was aware Dusty had a version but I think the girl group version is even superior to hers and that says alot.

Re: Need help trying to remember a song

Guys i solved it its "some of your lovin". Im not even sure which group sings it originally. I wasnt around in the 60s and i hear different opinions ex. honeybees and or crystals. Here it goes. This has to be one of my fave Goffin/King.

Re: One That Got By Me

Sounds like something that could have been on the Lost Horizon soundtrack maybe because of the cheesy lyrics. Also get a slight "everybodys out of town" vibe. I notice all Burts songs have dopplegangers.
