He wrote the lyrics to scores of top-40 hits, many of them with composer Burt Bacharach; many recorded by singer Dionne Warwick.  Eunice David said her late husband Hal David wrote with Ms. Warwick's "voice in his head."

She knows the story behind all of his songs, and wants others to know them, too... from the inspiration for "Do You Know the Way To San Jose?," to "What the World Needs Now is Love" and its 9-11 connection; the unlikely pairing that made "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" a country hit and the Oscar-winning "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" and its White House sing-along. Eunice David has written down those stories in her new book, "Hal David: His Magic Moments; There is Always Something There to Remind Me."

FOXs Jane Metzler talks with Ms.  David about the book and her husband's legacy, as the two revisit some Hal David favorites... songs that are being rediscovered by young performers today.
