"Walk On By" by Dionne Warwick

I could hardly let today walk on by without marking the birthday of Dionne Warwick - let alone pass up an opportunity to use such a lame-ass pun! Still, it helps that I actually love the song Walk on By, which Miss Warwick brought to the top of pop charts around the world in 1964.

Fans of his brand of songwriting suave will already know that this pretty little ballad was composed by Burt Bacharach, with an elegant accompaniment of words by Hal David, and anyone with ears* knows they never had a better interpreter than the soigné songstress herself.

*Not to mention Anyone Who Had a Heart - a later hit recorded at the same session...
