Leslie Bricusse: 'Lyrical genius' of film dies aged 90

Leslie Bricusse, the prolific British songwriter behind many of cinema's biggest hits such as Candyman and Goldfinger, has died at the age of 90.

His friend Dame Joan Collins described him as "one of the giant songwriters of our time“. Petula Clark, who sang You and I from 1968's Goodbye Mr Chips, told BBC Radio 4 he was "extraordinary“. Bricusse's career spanned 60 years with other credits including Talk to the Animals from Doctor Dolittle. He also wrote Candyman and Pure Imagination from the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Stage impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber released a statement, calling Bricusse "the most underestimated British songwriter of all time".

Leslie Bricusse obituary

The songwriter Leslie Bricusse, who has died aged 90, was a quiet man with an unshakeable sense of his own worth, an outlook justly cultivated in the early 1960s when his two stage musicals with Anthony Newley, Stop the World – I Want to Get Off (1961) and The Roar of the Greasepaint – The Smell of the Crowd (1964), spawned songs that became standards recorded by Sammy Davis Jr (What Kind of Fool Am I?), Nina Simone (Feeling Good) and Tony Bennett (Who Can I Turn To?), as well as Newley himself.

Leslie Bricusse, ‘Willy Wonka,’ ‘Goldfinger’ Songwriter, Dies at 90

Over seven decades, the London-born writer-composer was in demand for his clever, witty and tuneful songs, sometimes in collaboration with others (notably Anthony Newley in London, Henry Mancini and John Williams in Los Angeles) and sometimes serving as both lyricist and composer.
