Marvin Hamlisch: Nobody Did It Half as Good as You

Composer Marvin Hamlisch died at 68 after a brief illness. He will not be forgotten.

We’ll miss you, Marvin Hamlisch, and your scores of scores, movie soundtracks, and ballads. Best known as the composer of A Chorus Line, “The Way We Were,” “The Sting,” and The Spy Who Loved Me, among so many others, Hamlisch struck a perfect balance between profound originality and chart-topping catchiness. All-in-all, his music earned him four Emmy’s, three Academy Awards, a Tony, and a Pulitzer Prize. Here are a few of our favorite videos to honor the passing of a great artist.
