Re: Where Have The People Gone ?

Paul, I seem to remember Rex singing (talking it) on a 'Bacharach TV Special' ? 'blue' blue, yes he did and the TV special from 1972 was entitled 'Burt Bacharach: Close To You'. Rex Harrison also sort of duetted with Bacharach on 'I'll Never Fall In Love Again'. The other guests were Isaac Hayes an...

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

A Dutch friend asked me the other day if I was aware of a "very catchy" Bacharach tune that was a hit in her country in the mid-70s? Turns out that 'De Zwarte Kat' (The Black Cat) by Ciska Peters is an adaptation of a Bacharach and David song from many years before. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3l...

Re: Another great song that sounds like Bacharach

Blue, Les Reed once said something to the effect that many composers in the mid-60s had a pop at trying to write like Bacharach and that must included Bob Gaudio judging by that song, although as you stated there's a lot of John Barry in there as well in the song's verses. Either way it's nicely pr...

I don`t know, blue. Until the chorus, it strikes me as sounding like an unused theme for a James Bond movie.
Yes, it's a mixture of Bacharach and John Barry.

Re: 'Searching Wind'

Yes except that I can't imagine that Paul McCartney, who apparently wrote 'The Fool On The Hill' by himself, would have had much if any opportunity to have heard the rarer than rare 'Searching Wind'.
