Best known as the composer (with lyricist Hal David) of such 1960s hits as Dionne Warwick's Walk On By, Dusty Springfield's The Look of Love, and the Carpenters' Close to You, Burt Bacharach wrote the music for over 700 published songs, which have been recorded by some 2,000 artists - from Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley to the Beatles and the Supremes. Song By Song is a witty, cheeky song-by-song journey through Bacharach's vast recorded oeuvre, from Nat King Cole's little-known 1952 version of Once in a Blue Moon to Burt's recent collaborations with Elvis Costello, Lyle Lovett, and Chicago.
