On February 8, the music world lost one of the most influential persons in Pop Music, the late Burt Bacharach. With his songwriting, production, and various compositions whether solo or done with collaborators, Bacharach has given us some of the greatest songs and sounds, helped to elevate the careers of some of the best Artists including Dionne Warwick, Tom Jones, and Dusty Springfield, and scored Films such as “Casino Royale” (a James Bond Parody), “Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid“, “Arthur“, and “A Boy Called Po“. His work has influenced many, and in our latest Playlist, we cover some of the Jamaican Artists who have covered his songs.
In the “Jamaica Sings Burt Bacharach!” Playlist, we’ve featured 18 tracks that have given hit songs from the late Burt Bacharach a Jamaican touch. From Dennis Brown, to Wayne Wonder, to Diana King, to Dobby Dobson, get yourself familiar or reacquainted with some great music that came to life by Bacharach’s genius. Jamaicans covering some of your favourite International songs always went hand in hand, and we hope to cover a few more like this in the future. Sleep well Burt Bacharach.
