Repassez-moi l'standard... "(They Long to Be) Close to You" Burt Bacharach (music) & Hal David (lyrics) 1963

"Chanson écrite par l'un des légendaires tandem de la musique populaire américaine, Burt Bacharach, aux compostions et Hal David, pour les textes. Deux artistes qui entamèrent leur collaboration à la fin des années 50. Le succès énorme, en 1970, viendra d'un célèbre duo Les Carpenters..." L. Valero

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you...

1970, released by Karen & Richard Carpenter on their album Close to You, and it became their breakthrough hit. The song stayed at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks !

With "(They Long to Be) Close to You", The Carpenters earned a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Performance by a Duo, Group or Chorus in 1971.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you...
