As one of the top selling female performers of all time (56 singles have made the Billboard Top 100), Dionne Warwick is a national treasure. Early works such as the lush, “Don’t Make Me Over,” and the melancholy “I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself” (yes, she sang it before Jack White) paved the way to soundtrack themes like the late '60s Alfie, and Grammy-winning love songs like the sweetly sarcastic “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” (because another chance to catch pneumonia is all that kissing gets you). Finally, pop hits “Say a Little Prayer” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?” made Warwick second only to Aretha Franklin in chart toppers—so don’t miss your chance to hear what Burt Bacharach called “the perfect voice.” Cousin Whitney would be proud.
