Under the Influence

Once again it’s time for Monday’s Music Moves Me

It’s free choice week here at Monday’s Music Moves Me. I would be remiss if I didn’t do a tribute post for Burt Bacharach.  My sister was a big fan of his work, so I am also making this an ‘Under the Influence’ post.

As a young girl, I shared a room with my sister who was 11 years older. My sister loved playing the piano and she took a liking to Burt’s work. As such, I was subjected to his music as I was ‘much too young’ to have formed an opinion on music.  I am grateful that my sister ‘forced’ me to listen to her favorites.

Burt helped write so many other songs, but this is just a sampling of his work.

 Have an enjoyable week! I hope to see you all again soon :) 



  1. What a catalog this man left. I love all of these! (The lyrics of Wishing and Hoping are dated, but he or Hal David aren't to blame - it was a product of those times).

  2. Just great set of songs from an amazingly, talented man
