Rest In Peace To The Man Who Sang The Best Love Songs Of All Time

Iconic songwriter Burt Bacharach has passed away, leaving behind a legacy of timeless love ballads like “I Just Don’t Know What to Do With Myself” and “I Say A Little Prayer.” While these songs became anthems for many, Bacharach’s personal life was riddled with sorrow.

He went through three tumultuous divorces and faced the devastating suicide of his daughter Nikki, diagnosed with autism. “The suicide of his daughter Nikki… deeply impacted him and his songwriting,” inspiring poignant tributes in his later works.

His collaborations with female artists occasionally led to professional jealousies, further complicating his personal relationships. However, the birth of his first child in 1966 marked a turning point, briefly drawing him away from the limelight.

Despite facing challenges, including Nikki’s undiagnosed Asperger’s which tragically culminated in her suicide at 40, Bacharach’s music remains an enduring testament to love and loss. Our deepest condolences to his family and fans.
