Re: What Ever Happened to "Po"?

There is a Facebook page for the film which has updates about screenings (at Film Festivals). They do say "it will have a limited run in Los Angeles November 25th to Dec. 1st". They have a link to a report which outlines how Bacharach got to be involved in the film, and a video of the song...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Yes - it certainly is from Macarthur Park. I can remember that instrumental theme (the longer version from Macarthur Park) was used as a promo theme by a TV station here in Australia back around 1970. At exactly the same time, another station was using an instrumental version of part of "Promis...

Re: Burt's classical music inspirations

It is interesting that Bacharach has mentioned many times in recent years the influence of Ravel. But I can remember listening to a radio series on Bacharach - called the "Bacharach Bio" which was broadcast of radio in the early 1970's. It was a series of about 11 one hour programs. On one...

Re: Lincol Center - Some Lovers

This performance - to my naïve surprise - already has been removed from the LC Live website. If it`s any consolation, only blue logged in to voice his enjoyment of the program. Everyone else seems implicitly to have shared my underwhelmed response. Not correct - I had also expressed my enthusiasm f...

Re: Livestream of "Some Lovers"

The livestream is still available - I am not sure how long it will be. I really enjoyed the songs. I had perhaps listened to slightly more than half before so knew what quite a few were like. I think it is great to hear some fairly new Burt Bacharach melodies.

Although the song was dropped from the show, a bit of it survived in the Overture.

Re: "Hush" et, al. from Some Lovers

Here is Karima's original music video (2009) -

To me it sounds like it was a Bacharach arrangement too.

"Come In Ogni Ora" translates as "Come in Every Time" according to Google.
