    @B0njiB He never had any pretense about being a great singer. He is renowned for being a great songwriter/ composer/ arranger/ conductor. Talent doesn’t require for everyone to sing like your idol Justin Beiber so get a life. ;-P

    Ok, i’ll be the one to say it. He has no talent and the lyrics to this song suck. I can’t figure out how a no talent hack can get such a following. I want to break both of his legs with a fire extinguisher. Mr rogers sang better than this.

    Alfie seems to be a carefree guy who hasn’t fallen in love and maybe doesn’t believe it exists because his heart wasn’t involved before and the singer asks him about love and tells him there is true love if he uses his heart to find it. Maybe he’s a playboy type?

    I loved these in the 60′s with Dionne and I love Ron Isley as much or more..
    Musician that is timeless. Wish I had been in NY to attend this!

    I feel touched by this man’s honest emotion through his old, broken voice, expressed with the gentle acceptancing heart that sometimes seems to shine through in in some people, in old age. Heart breathing, beautiful.

    Poetry that is sorely missed in today’s popular music offerings, Bacharach’s tunes will live forever. One of my favorite songs to reflect by.
