What the World Needs Now: Words by Hal David

What_the_World_Needs_Now_Hal_DavidHosted by ardent admirer Bette Midler, this is a musical tribute to the man who wrote some of the most enduring songs in American popular music.

In partnership with composer Burt Bacharach, the duo dominated the pop-music charts in the 1960s and early 70s and crafted a rich legacy of Top-40 hit recordings unmatched to this day.

Guests interviewed in the program include Bacharach, Dionne Warwick, Valerie Simpson, B. J. Thomas, music writer Francis Davis and NPR’s Terry Gross, along with a cavalcade of music-clip performances from Warwick, Aretha Franklin, Cher, Barbra Streisand, B. J. Thomas, Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones, Jackie DeShannon and Glen Campbell.

Timeless titles and tunes include “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?,” “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” “Walk on By,” “Alfie,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “A House Is Not a Home” and more.
