Flipping through early morning tv today, Wed. the 4th, I found it so conincidental to hear Burt Bacharach come up twice(well, once by name and once by associaton)! First on MSNBC's "Morning Joe", at the end of the show, host Joe Scarborough was asking his guests to name the five best living songwriters. Mr. Scarborough, who was last, named Burt as one who has written so many classics, and needed to be included in the list with people like Bob Dylan(don't remember any others, it was early).
Then on "Married With Children" (!), an episode where Al Bundy has a melody in his head but can't remember the title of the song. At the end of the episode, Al goes to a record store, waits in line as people hum a melody and the clerk tells them the name of the song. The man right in front hums a melody and the clerk says, Chuck Jackson, "Any Day Now"!
Both of these mentions happened in the same half hour! Wow, "Morning Joe" and "Married With Children", who would have thought!
