Burt Bacharach's Quotes

  • A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the word you first thought of.
  • The groovy thing about pop music is that it's wide open. Anything can happen.
  • It's hard to be married to someone in the business. Carole Bayer Sager and I wrote some really good songs - we had three No 1 hits together. But I think you have to be grown-up, and I don't think I've been particularly grown-up in some of these marriages that I've had.
  • Elvis Costello is a good guy. He is very intense. When we were working on 'Painted from Memory,' I could always bet that at 2.30am, if I was up and thinking about something, then he'd be up and thinking about the same thing, too.
  • I've written some really bad songs, which you'll never hear. An example? 'Underneath the Overpass.'
