Miss Dionne Warwick

 

My mom loved Miss Warwick's work with Burt Bacharach.  Constantly heard this catalog in my youth. :)

Haunting is right, Kirk.  This 1967 song always brings to mind Hollywood tragedies.

Sharon Tate was murdered.  Judy Garland was fired from the film because of her drinking and was replaced by Susan Hayward. 

Both of these ladies would die in the summer of 1969.

:(

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there's some place that he'd rather be
He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me"
As the smile ran away from his face
"Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place"
