Though never credited with bringing about any social, political or fashion revolutions, Bacharach and David's music was as much a part of the decade as the Beatles, the Stones or Dylan.
One thing a lyricist must learn is not to fall in love with his own lines. Once you learn that, you can walk away from the lyric and look at it with a reasonable degree of objectivity.
Never be ashamed to write a melody that people remember.

In writing, I search for believability, simplicity and emotional impact.
I try to create an emotion to which others can respond.
