Dionne Warwick – Anyone Who Had a Heart (1963)

One of the greatest records of all time. Released in late 1963, the song reached the US Top 10 in January 1964.

In the UK, Cilla Black’s version, released in 1964, maybe better known (and it reached number 1 in the UK) but the Dionne Warwick original is peerless.

The song was actually written for Dionne by Burt Bacharach and Hal David who worked with her to hone the final version which, for the aficionados out there, features constantly shifting time signatures and a chorus to die for.

The single version and then a grainy live cut.
