Lost Horizon (Album Version).
Burt Freeman Bacharach (/ˈbækəræk/ BAK-ə-rak; born May 12, 1928) is an American composer, songwriter, record producer, pianist, and singer who has composed hundreds of pop songs from the late 1950s through the 1980s, many in collaboration with lyricist Hal David. A six-time Grammy Award winner and three-time Academy Award winner, Bacharach's songs have been recorded by more than 1,000 different artists. As of 2014, he had written 73 US and 52 UK Top 40 hits.
The songs were written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, whose long and successful partnership was effectively terminated by their experiences working on the score. Bacharach felt that the producers were sanctioning weakened versions of his music, and he attempted to exert greater influence over what was being developed. In his 2013 autobiography, Burt Bacharach cites Lost Horizon as very nearly ending his musical career. He stated that taken in isolation the songs worked, but failed in the context of the film. He stated that he was eventually banned from the dubbing studios at Todd-AO because of his increasing criticism of how the material was being handled.

I wish I really knew. If I did it would make writing much easier for me.
Ross Hunter's musical remake of the 1937 fantasy, based on James Hilton's enduring bestseller, was written off by critics and audiences almost immediately in 1973, sounding off a backlash against musicals in general that gave the genre a bad reputation in Hollywood for decades. The classic "Lost Horizon" asked the viewer to suspend belief in the hope of something better. Burt Bacharach and Hal David are talented songwriters and I happen to love their songs, especially "The World Is A Circle", "The Things That I Will Not Miss", and "Question Me An Answer". Some people claim that Hermes Pan's choreography is ghastly and that the snowy mountain sets look as if they were made of plastic; I disagree on both counts.
