Burt, you genius


I've been on a weird Burt Bacharach stint for the last two hours.  First, I tried to find Ella Fitzgerald and Carol Burnett singing "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" but was unsuccessful.  I like the Elvis Costello duet with Burt himself from the second Austin Powers movie, and of course there's always Dionne.  But what takes the cake is the gem "Close to You", sung best by the brother-sister team The Carpenters, with Richard on wurlitzer and Karen on drums:

Don't worry, I still have a tremendous fondness for this version as well.
