⦿ What Does It Take (to Win Your Love)~~Junior Walker 1969

Another great oldie that’s like a time capsule of emotion. I remember how I felt then,
the things I thought about, and how my room looked in the dawn as I got ready for
school with the radio on.

⦿Elmer Bernstein – ‘Hollywood & the Stars’ theme

The memorable beautiful theme by Elmer Bernstein for the tv show ‘Hollywood and the Stars’, 1963-64;
also used for a time at the Academy Awards.  A lovely piece of music that so many remember and love.

  To me it evokes a haunting melancholy,  yet at the same time a majestic grandeur..
Bernstein was a prolific composer, with 200+ well-known film & television themes and scores in 50+ years,
for a wide scope of projects : dramas, comedies and westerns — the iconic Magnificent Seven theme, for one.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmer_Bernstein
