Dionne Warwick

I'll Never Fall in Love Again

Song Review by

Song ideas can spring up in the oddest places at the oddest times. Songwriter/producer Burt Bacharach was in the hospital recuperating from pneumonia when the ideas for "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" began to come to him. Finishing the song with his producing partner, lyricist Hal David, he offered the song to Ella Fitzgerald, whose single release of the song failed to chart. The duo then offered it to Dionne Warwick, whose perky retake on the tune went to number six pop, number 17 R&B, and topped the adult contemporary charts in early 1970. The record earned Warwick a Grammy for Best Contemporary Pop Female Vocal Performance. The I'll Never Fall in Love Again LP also listed her original take on "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" (later a hit for B.J. Thomas), "Let Me Go to Him," and a sensational cover of George Harrison's "Something."
