RIP Hal David
One of the songwriters for whom the word "great" doesn't really seem sufficient.

We've lost another legend...

I noted his passing and posted it to another forum yesterday. He and Burt Bacharach had a seemingly unending series of massive hits in the 60s and 70s (and perhaps later; I wasn't paying attention after that). I even performed some of those numbers as a member of a sanctioned high-school vocal ensemble.

Their music may not be to your taste but you must acknowledge their skill and accomplishment. Requiescat in pace, Hal.

I still get goosebumps every time I listen to this version. Well, since EVERYONE has sampled it, people can call me goosey from now on... Er... did I just say that? :D
