How do you even begin to describe composer Burt Bacharach’s contribution to popular music? There are numbers, of course - six Grammys, three Oscars, 73 US Top 40 hits, 52 in the UK - but they tell you nothing of the effect his songs have had on millions upon millions of people in his 65-year career. Walk on By, I Say a Little Prayer, Make It Easy on Yourself, Do You Know the Way to San Jose?, I’ll Never Fall in Love Again, What’s New Pussycat? - all Bacharach songs (often with lyrics by his writing partner Hal David), and all recorded by the cream of 20th century singing talent, including Dionne Warwick, Isaac Hayes, Aretha Franklin, The Walker Brothers, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones…

It is, to say the least, an honour to have Bacharach play Glastonbury and it’s been a long time coming. In 2000, he was booked but had to pull out at the last moment. And so, a belated welcome to Worthy Farm, Mr. Bacharach, and please play Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head if it’s tipping down. (00:58:43)
