Happy birthday to one of the greatest living song writers! Burt Bacharach was born today in 1928, which makes him 89. The songwriter, pianist and arranger has written hundreds of hit songs, including “The Look of Love”, “This Guy’s in Love with You”, “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head”, and”(They Long to Be) Close to You”… and so many more! In 2012, Burt Bacharach and his songwriting partner Hal David received the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song; the first time the honor has been given to a songwriting team.
