This Bacharach/David tune is the title song for a musical with a book by Neil Simon. It was based on the Billy Wilder movie, The Apartment, which has a wonderful theme song itself.
The musical debuted in 1968 and ran for 1281 performances. The Warwick version of the song went to #19 on the Billboard charts.
Naked Eyes, the British synthpop duo, had their own hit covering a Bacharach/David tune, “Always Something There to Remind Me”. Their song called “Promises, Promises” actually peaked higher than Warwick’s, just missing the Top Ten.
