Yes he did, for Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.
I call him a genius with no hesitation. He’s one of our greatest songwriters.
Burt makes chord/tempo/key changes seem easy. The average listener probably doesn’t even notice the radical aspects of many of his songs.
His music is much more progressive than a lot of music marketed as progressive.
I agree with this. Quite a catalog of great songs. Always seemed to be a class act also.
I've had parts of the "Casino Royale" soundtrack stuck in my head for 50 years!
Some of his best work ever.
Has he figured out the way to San Jose by now?
Nah - he met up with Jimmy Webb and they went to Phoenix instead...
Burt is a ladies' man and a master composer of timeless music. He's developed a unique sound and style which has become instantly recognizable.
Much love for Dionne Warwick and of course, The Stranglers recorded 'Walk On By' when Hugh Cornwell was still the singer
With an arrangement stolen from Light My Fire.
Happy Birthdayand many healthy years to come.
Hearing him sing "A house is not a home" always brings tears to my eyes...
I heard this version inside of a Vans clothing store. Pretty neat cover!
the greatest living songwriter and a cool guy to boot. his shows are still vital and can't wait for this summers visit to san diego concerts by the bay.
First time I was aware of his name was with his hit single Trains and Boats and Planes in 1965.
Just saw him wrap up a two-hour show about an hour and a half ago near Palm Springs. Beautiful. Where are we going to hear songs like this when he's gone?
