In the 1950s, Burt Bacharach, a piano accompanist for top-name singers, was a struggling songwriter. The only trouble was that his songs were so original and so different from regular popular songs that few publishers would hear them, let alone publish them. But 1957 was Bacharach's year. Teamed with lyricist Hal David, he produced two hits, "The Story of My Life", a song with a 52-bar chorus and some notes to be whistled by the singer, and "Magic Moments", a much simpler song with an intriguing melody and a happy lilt. Perry's lovely million-seller has created many magic moments for listener's ever since.
