Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach



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

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach



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",

Musician who does great Bacharach renditions

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.

Bacharachs music heavy Jewish influence?

After listening to Burts music through the years I have come to realize there is probably much more Jewish influence in his music than the other Brill Building composers who were mostly Jewish for the most part. 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.
