The 1969 Grammy-winning score by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Promises, Promises was adapted by Neil Simon from Billy Wilder's screenplay of the 1960 film The Apartment (with Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine). A Broadway smash that lasted over 1,200 performances, the play won one Tony Award alongside four Grammys, and was out of print for many years before being reissued on CD in 1999. The songs include several of Bacharach-David's best, including "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," "What Do You Get When You Fall in Love" and the title song.
