The Brilliance that was Bacharach and Warwick


His music, her voice - magic. Warwick with Stevie Wonder, the late Whitney Houston and Luther Vandross.

Your topic today is timely, because last night I was listening to Bacharach's song
"A house is not a home", sung seperately by Luther Vandross, Sarah Vaughan and Dion Warwick, all different versions of a great song.

I'm partial to Sarah Vaughan's version. I agree that Bacharach is a brilliant song writer and his songs were perfect for Warwicks voice.

Do you remember why they did that song? They raised $3mill for AIDS research with it.

Very sad time. I lost a great many friends and colleagues those years.

I'd forgotten that, Dana. It was such a dark and scary time when HIV was a death sentence.
