Song Of The Day - "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Dionne Warwick

"Walk On By," "Anyone Who Had A Heart," You'll Never Get To Heaven (If You Break My Heart)," "Message To Michael," "Alfie," "Do You Know The Way To San Jose," "I'll Never Fall In Love Again," "I Say A Little Prayer" -- the list goes on and on, making an argument for the notion that the songwriting partnership of Burt Bacharach and Hal David was one of the most important in the history of pop music on par with Lennon and McCartney.  Add the supple voice of Dionne Warwick to the mix and pop music magic was sure to follow. This 1965 gem from her fifth album, "Here I Am," is one of many should've-been-hits she recorded and it is certainly as good as some of the bona-fide hits mentioned above.
