Wow!,
I didn't realize he wrote so many hits.
R.I.P. and sympathies to his family.

"Try to say things as simply as possible, which is probably the most difficult thing to do."

And he was a master of the art. RIP indeed.

A great songwriter, didn't get enough credit IMHO, it was always ' The Best of Bacharach ' or a great Burt Bacharach song, when all the time it was Hal David who wrote them.

They were playing them as I drove home last night - took me right back to the 60s. 70s.
Drove to the gig with Max Bygraves singing a song from my childhood "Gilly, Gilly, Ossenfeffer, Katzenellen Bogen by the Sea"

He wrote some of the best lyrics. Songs such as Walk On By must have tugged many a teenage heart-string.
RIP Mr. David.

"The Story of My Life" helped prove that Marty Robbins was a geat Pop singer, not just a County singer from Arizona.

Hal David also wrote some of the worst songs ever, such as "Do You Know the Way to San Jose" and "One Less Egg to Fry". Pure drek.

Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head--but they will no longer fall on his. I was surprised to see how many movies used that song. http://www.haldavid.com/words.htm

Raindrops was the song they played when I toured the LBJ ranch back in 1986 or so. I never did get the connection, maybe Johnson just liked the song.

I admit to being a Bacharach/David song fan.
Always something there to remind me, 24 Hours from Tulsa, Anyone who had a heart, Trains and Boats and planes...
And they're all nothing like each other.
Well done and RIP!
