I could not find any videos of Dusty performing this song… And I do love the Diana Krall version… Elvis Costello is one lucky bastard… but I just thought that Dusty’s version is the classic one that we should hear today.
But now you have access to both, so enjoy… Thanks to Vini for this link… and sadly, for breaking the news to me…
Hal David passed away today, at the age of 91… He could have and should have been with us longer… but what is so amazing about art and artists is the legacy they leave behind… and boy, did Hal David leave behind a world of music and memories.
This song is so damn sexy. Mmm, mmm, good!!!
“The Look of Love” is a popular song composed by Burt Bacharach and Hal David and sung by Dusty Springfield, which appeared in the 1967 spoof James Bond film Casino Royale.
The music was written by Burt Bacharach, and was originally intended to be an instrumental. But later Hal David added the lyrics, and the song was published in 1967. According to Bacharach, the melody was inspired by watching Ursula Andress in an early cut of the film.”
So as you think about all the amazing songs Hal had a hand in… as we all think about it let’s do this… Let’s you and “I Say A Little Prayer”. Wow!
