Burt Bacharach, writer of such classic pop hits as ‘Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,’ to be remembered forever

Art and creation never die even after the death of their creators. Same is the case of Burt Bacharach, the acclaimed composer and songwriter behind dozens of mellow pop hits from the 1950s to the 1980s, including “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” “(They Long to Be) Close to You” and the theme from the movie “Arthur,” who died, at the age of  94.

A very prominent figure in 20th century pop music, Bacharach scored major hits in several genres, from Top 40 to country to rhythm and blues and film scores. He wrote hit songs for a wide range of artists, including Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick, Tom Jones, Neil Diamond, the Carpenters and Christopher Cross.
