10 tracks to remember Burt Bacharach


One Less Bell to Answer/A House is Not a Home-Barbra Streisand

Burt Bacharach’s songs often feel fairly understated, tapping into the intersection of classic and cool. Understated, however, is not typically the word Barbra Streisand brings to mind; in this mash-up of two classic Bacharach tracks, Streisand essentially duets herself, building the lyric’s longing from a murmur into a howl in the span of six minutes.
