Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Sublime! His genius is OUR memories! On Burt Bacharach's 85th birthday today, with a new PBS TV special airing next month, we recall when Genius met Genius, Melody met Harmony, and created some of his iconic songs for the ages -The Fifth Dimension - One Less Bell To Answer; Dusty Springfield - A House is Not a Home, and much much more!; @burt_bach

PBS YouTube video: Burt Bacharach's Best: My Music, June 2013, PBS. The My Music series spotlights the greatest hits and moments from songwriter and arranger Burt Bacharach in an all-new special airing June 2013 on most PBS stations. Uploaded May 6, 2013. http://youtu.be/taa-K_DNef0

TooleMan87 YouTube Channel video: "Hollywood Palace 1967 w/host Herb Alpert Part 5 of 7". ABC-TV's "The Hollywood Palace" of December 12, 1967. Uploaded July 31, 2009. Order of guests performers in this segment with host Herb Alpert, and Burt Bachrach on piano, saluting Bachrach/David songs: Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, Wes Montgomery, Liza Minnelli, Baja Marimba Band, Liza Minnelli and Wes Montgomery, Herb Alpert. http://youtu.be/BvxCuN6W_9U

This last video is clearly one of THE greatest single videos that currently exist on YouTube.

In the late 1960's, some music critics said that Bachrach's music suffered from, perhaps, an "overcomplex melodic structure."
Well, whatever it was, people liked it and couldn't get enough, and neither could other talented singing artists of the time -and future singers hearing it as kids.
