Legendary composer Burt Bacharach, whose hits include “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” and “I Say a Little Prayer,” has died. He was 94.
The Oscar winner died Wednesday at home in Los Angeles of natural causes, his publicist Tina Brausam told the Associated Press on Thursday.
Bacharach had top 10 hits since the 1950s including songs like “Alfie,” “I Say a Little Prayer,” “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” and “This Guy’s in Love with You” as well as “Walk on By,” recorded by Dionne Warwick.
Despite a career spanning 50 years, Bacharach told Page Six in 2021: “I’ve had a lot of turn-downs in my life you know, I really have.”
He added: “You don’t win everything. Not even close to every time and I’m very accepting of things that don’t always work out.”
Bacharach scored three Academy Awards and eight Grammys over the course of his career and was a prize-winning Broadway composer for “Promises, Promises.”
