Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

The Stylistics only for the children has Bacharach elements in the chorus. Thom Bell was def a fan.

Connie Stevens Tick Tock. Another Thom Bell production on the b side of the original recording of Betcha by Golly Wow(no it wasn't the Stylistics) .How many fogeys on here just learned something from a millenial? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhyitSMgMzg&list=PLOzdG_QQMqT8AowvOt-P0h7SSE5mDFgCe&ind...

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

Thom Bell is another one who could do a good dupe of Bacharach when he wanted to. Listen to this Dusty Springfield lesser known gem "i wanna be a free girl"

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

This might be a stretch. But this song from the Ojays(Mr Lucky) produced by none other than the amazing Gamble/Huff songwriting team has a lush and swingy sound and i get a bit of Bacharachesque vibe from it. What do you guys think?

This is from a performance at Yale in `73 (so she hadn`t been "countrified" yet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCOY9vTb8vE This is from still another documentary promised but yet to see the light of day. The film in question here was apparently completed and "auctioned" - whatever that could mea...

Another Roger Nichols classic. This is no coincidence if they had some hal david lyrics i would be fooled.

Bacharach meets Pet Sounds meets Chicago

A demo by roger nichols "tomboy"

One thing I can say us Bacharach meter changes are more smooth and seamless. When others imitate it its feels like "look mom see I can do a Bacharach meter change too",

Larry L from youtube. For someone not named Dionne pretty good singing and someone not named Burt pretty good playing.

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

Get ready for some convolution this is a gamble/huff song that sounds like a thom bell song that sounds like a Bacharach song sung by a singer who worked with Bacharach Dusty Springfield. Heres her rendition of Free Girl written by Linda Creed.

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

I wouldnt be suprised if this song wasn't posted already but it would be great if this site could keep Bacharach's legacy alive long after he is gone and show the influence he had on his contemporaries and those that follow after him. Another gem penned by the great Jimmy Webb who we all know was gr...

Re: Bacharachs music heavy Jewish influence?

Are these simply jewish musicians doing an arrangement of Bacharach? Is it suppose to be classicaly Jewish? Not sure I got that impression.

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.
