Bacharach: genius

Really enjoying the Electric Proms on BBC iplayer. Last night I watched the Oasis gig, which includes a storming version of the Beatles I am the walrus - and the Burt Bacharach performance. I hadn't realised quite how many brilliant songs had been written by Burt Bacharach, often with Hal David. I know some people dismiss them as easy listening, but I think he had a real gift. See what you think.
