My top 10 for today, 9-28-04

Post by An Enormous BB Fan »

My Top Ten list will vary day to day, depending on my mood of course. You see, Burt wrote too many unbelievably great songs to fit into a Top Ten list.

Top Ten lists were not made for geniuses like Burt Bacharach, I'll tell you that!

Every so often I will post my favority top 10. They will be different, of course, depending on the day.

1. Promises, Promises
2. Do You Know The Way To San Jose
3. I Say A Little Prayer For You
4. Odds and Ends
5. The April Fools
6. Anyone Who Had A Heart
7. A House Is Not A Home
8. Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
9. Walk Little Dolly
10. Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa

My Favorite Bacharach Song

Post by BB4LIFE »

My favorite Bacharach song would have to be "A House is Not a Home." And the version I am talking about is a live version from a concert he gave a while back. I want to say possibly in the 70's or so is when it took place, I could be wrong. This version can be found on the Something Big: The Complete A&M Years CD. The intro is awesome, with Burt humming the first few notes and then joining the final note with the next chord from his piano. CLASSIC. It is a very intimate performance in my opinion. Burt is not only my favorite composer, but also, one of my favorite "singers" as well. Simply because when he sings he songs, you know he means every word. The emotion and dedication is all there. What more can you ask for? He is the man.

My Top Ten (if only for the moment)

Post by rasputin »

I agree, BB FAN, Top Ten Lists were never made for Burt's genius.

Let us say then that today these are my Top Ten:

1. "(They Don't Give Medals To) Yesterday's Heroes" by Dionne,
2. "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" by Dusty
3. "(There Goes) The Forgotten Man" by Jimmy Radcliffe
4. "My Thief" by Burt and Elvis
5. "The Wine Is Young" by Dionne
6. "Turkey-Lurkey Time" from PROMISES, PROMISES
7. "What The World Needs Now Is Love" by Jackie De Shannon
8. "So Long, Johnny" by Jackie De Shannon
9. "Looking With My Eyes" by Dionne
10. "The Things I Will Not Miss" from LOST HORIZON

Hmm... and this only scratches the surface of my interest in BB/HD/DW.... They change from day-to-day...
