Hal David has passed away. Hal, and his music writing partner Burt Bacharach, scored some big tunes that you still hear playing on the radio today.
My parents were big fans and I first learned to dance on the toes of my Dad’s feet to songs like, “Walk On By” and “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.”
When they got together with Dionne Warwick, they made beautiful music together. I think my favorite song of theirs is “I Say a Little Prayer.”
As an atheist, the song “You’ll Never Get to Heaven” really shouldn’t be part of my repertoire but I sing it nonetheless.
I think Hal would understand. His lyrics say it all.
