Wasn't familiar with the name....but I SURE know the music. R.I.P.
I loved the “Pure Imagination” song from Willy Wonka.
But I didn’t know his name either. May he rest in peace, and thanks for contributing something meaningful to humanity.
Yeah, same. Another in a long list of people whose names I'd never have known unless I studied credits, but whose work I've heard my whole life.
He did* all of Wonka's musical numbers (including Candy Man, for good or ill I guess), but I had no idea he was also behind Feeling Good (and a whole bunch more) until I saw it in a notable obits thing this morning.
*all three above were with songwriting partner Anthony Newley, who died in 1999
This one was my favorite, the scary tunnel bit that starts around 1:30
