I saw the movie 'Mirror Mask' last night and I was surprised when I heard this on the soundtrack:

I thought that this might have been posted here before but if it has I can't find it. Overall I like this version of 'Any Old Time Of The Day' by the curiously named Leslie Uggams.

We've discussed 'Any Old Time Of The Day' quite a bit on here and the general consensus was that Bacharach didn't put enough emphasis on the "Call me and I'll be there" refrain on the original recording by Dionne Warwick. Stan Getz obviously thought along the same lines because his version puts it centre stage of the tune, to the extent he dispenses with the bridge all together:

This is one from Ennio Morricone I hadn't heard before it came up on my Spotify Discover Weekly.
I know the classics but beyond those, where do you start exploring his massive back catalog ?

Yes she's lip-syncing but this is the first time I've seen Bobbie Gentry perform her UK no.1 hit version of 'I'll Never Fall In Love Again'. By the time this first charted in the early autumn of 1969 the song had already been a hit on Broadway for several months but Bobbie Gentry's recording was the first time I'd heard the song and I remember immediately being beguiled by the melody. 'Promises, Promises' started its London run that same autumn and Bobbie Gentry was there on the opening night as was Bacharach who famously took over the production's soundboard.

Italian film composer Piero Piccioni seemed very influenced by Bacharach.
Here are a couple of examples...
