Burt Bacharach Remembers Writing Songs at the Brill Building

25 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As told to Rebecca Milzoff I’d been on the road, playing for acts. Vic Damone was the first, then the Ames Brothers. I’d hear some of these songs that were being submitted to the Ames Brothers, and I thought they were so absurdly simple, and maybe very easy to write. So I left to come back to New York to write songs. There was a man named Jack Wolf, and he was the first person I wrote with. He introduced me to the Brill Building. We wrote one song together, probably in my apartment, called “Keep Me in Mind,” for Patti Page. It was not an overnight thing—you had to write a song, get a publisher, make a demo—but that was my introduction.I met a few people in the Brill Building and there was an office I could use, and I started to just work with different people. »
