Sunday Music: Do You Know The Way To San Jose


One of the best things to happen to music was when Burt Bacharach and Hal David began writing songs together. The single best thing to happen to that legendary songwriting team was Dionne Warwick recording their work. Proving once again that "Nobody in this town knows nothing", and that most talent should shut up and sing, Warwick didn't like this song, still doesn't, and thought it was dumb. It was a gold record, a Top Ten Billboard hit, and won Warwick her first Grammy award (of six, lifetime). Which is why she performs it in concert to this day, and why it sounds just as good now as it did in 1968.
