Burt Bacharach: The man who put neurosis into top pops
Maureen Cleave, The Evening Standard, 29 August 1964
THE INTRODUCTION of the Neurotic Ballad to British popular music is the responsibility of an American called Burt Bacharach. We first developed a taste for the Neurotic Ballad last year when Gene Pitney sang that agonising 'Twentyfour Hours from Tulsa'.
