5. Message To Michael (1966)

Written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David , ‘Message To Michael’ was recorded by numerous artists before Warwick released her version in 1966. Unfortunately this wasn't an international hit for Dionne Warwick ; it only peaked at 55 in the UK.

4. Reach Out For Me (1964)

Originally recorded by Lou Johnson, 'Reach Out For Me' was another of Warwick's hits to be written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David . Taken from her album Make Way for Dionne Warwick, it was a number twenty hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

3. You'll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break My Heart) (1964)

Another hit taken from the album ‘Make Way For Dionne Warwick’, You'll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break My Heart) reached number 34 in the US but proved more popular in the UK, making its way into the top 20 in 1964.

2. Anyone Who Had A Heart (1963)

"If I would have sneezed on my recording, Cilla would have sneezed on hers.” That’s what Warwick had to say about Cilla Black’s version of Anyone Who Had A Heart when we spoke to her . No love lost there then!

Just what would Warwick have been without Burt Bacharach and Hal David?! Anyone Who Had A Heart was released first by Cilla Black, after she heard Warwick’s version - Black's debuted at number 28 on the UK chart and Warwick’s original debuted the following week number 42.

1. Walk On By (1964)

Well deserving of the number one spot in this list, ‘Walk On By’ reached number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number nine on the UK Singles Chart in 1964. And yes, it is another Burt Bacharach and Hal David song!
