Burt Bacharach has died. he composed much of the music that I heard in the foreground and the background while I was growing up. He collaborated with everyone from Dionne Warwick to Elvis Costello. Hal David frequently wrote the lyrics. In later years, many of his songs turned up in romantic comedies like My Best Friend's Wedding, which is a favorite of my daughter.
