MUSIC TO WATCH GIRLS DRIVE BY: This is something we can't wait to hear: Burt Bacharach writing stuff with Dr. Dre:

"Three of the four things I've already cut [for his new album] have Dr. Dre drum loops that he gave me," Bacharach said last week from his house in Del Mar, Calif. "It's a challenging, freeing feeling, to take an existing format - like these rigid, four-bar loops - and to see what you can write on top of it. It's hard and challenging too because it does have some restrictions. It's kinda like Hal (David, his longtime collaborator) giving me the whole lyric on 'Alfie' and then having to set that up around it."

We're not sure how Hal David would feel at being compared with Dre, mind.
