Some of his most famous lyrics include ‘Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head’, ‘This Guys In Love With You’, ‘Close To You’, ‘What The World Needs Now Is Love’, ‘Alfie’, ‘What’s New Pussycat’, ‘The Look Of Love’, ‘Walk On By’ and ‘I’ll Never Fall In Love Again’.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honoured Hal with the 2,451st star outside 6752 Hollywood Boulevard. Songwriter Paul Williams was a guest speaker.
Hal shares his piece of the footpath outside 6752 Hollywood Blvd with Motley Crue, Brian Adams, Jack Oakie, Rush, Harold Russell and Dick Enberg.
