Very interesting book about songwriting. Nearly everyone who wrote songs during this
time is in this book. Burt Bacharach and Hal David (the lyricist to most of Bacharach's songs) are the geniuses. I never cared for Carol Bayer Sager's lyrics ;her songs usually depended on several people to co-write with her. They are what I would call Smaltz (corny). I learned that
to get your songs published and sung, you need to be connected. Only certain people's
songs are out there for us to hear. The book has a lot of insight into the music business.
