Burt Bacharach, writer of such classic pop hits as 'Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head,' dies at 94

Burt Bacharach, the acclaimed writer and lyricist behind many smooth pop hits from the 1950s to the 1980s, 

"Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head," "(They Long to Be) Near You"

 the subject from the film "Arthur," has passed on, a relative of Bacharach affirmed to CNN.

A significant figure in twentieth century popular music, Bacharach scored significant hits in various classes

Top 40 to country to cadence and blues and film scores. He composed hit melodies for a great many specialists

including Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick, Tom Jones, Neil Jewel, the Woodworkers and Christopher Cross.

A considerable lot of his melodies were ordered, maybe unreasonably, as "simple tuning in" 

a delicate, dated style of music with few harsh edges. 

Most were distant from the hints of rock and roll, funk, disco or other well known sorts of his time.

But Bacharach, with long-term colleague Hal David, produced a considerable lot of the catchiest tunes of the time. 

 A considerable lot of them - - "Say a Little Supplication,"
