A hero of mine. I was just singing "One Less Bell To Answer" for my wife and daughter to display the beauty of that song just a couple of days ago.

As a singer, song writer and (predominantly) lyricist, Bacharach and Hal David have had a huge influence on me in so many ways. My favorite tune of theirs is Kentucky Bluebird (Message to Martha).

I listened to a lot today and heard my daughter singing this in bed.

She hasn't learned the whole thing after only one or two listens, but she proves Hal David could write a hook!
