Happy Birthday to Hal David...

   Sorry about the blog not being up yesterday, but spent much of the day in bed sick. Am feeling quite a bit better this morning, but still in a pretty mellow mood. Thank goodness today is Hal David's 90th birthday!
    David began as a lyricist in the mid-40's for band leaders like Guy Lombardo and Sammy Kaye, but it was his collaboration with Burt Bacharach that put both of them on the map.

    They began working together in 1957 writing, "The Story of My Life" for Marty Robbins in 1957, and from then until the early 70's had an impressive list of hits songs for many artists. Here are three that he had a hand in.... Enjoy your Wednesday.....
