The
Bergmans,
who
married
in
1958,
had been
amongst
the
most
enduring,
profitable
and
productive
songwriting
partnerships,
specialising
in
introspective
ballades
for
movie,
tv
and
the
stage
that
mixed
the
romance
of
Tin
Pan
Alley
with
the
polish
of
up to date
pop.
They
labored
with
some
of
the
world’s
high
melodists,
together with
Marvin
Hamlisch,
Cy
Coleman
and
Michel
Legrand,
and
had been
coated
by
some
of
the
world’s
best
singers,
from
Frank
Sinatra
and
Barbra
Streisand
to
Aretha
Franklin
and
Michael
(*93*).

“If
one
actually
is
critical
about
wanting
to
write
songs
that
are
authentic,
that
actually
communicate
to
individuals,
you
have
to
really feel
like
you
created
one thing
that
wasn’t
there
earlier than

which
is
the
final
accomplishment,
is not
it?”
Marilyn
Bergman
informed
The
Huffington
Post
in
2013.
“And
to
make
one thing
that
wasn’t
there
earlier than,
you
have
to
know
what
got here
earlier than
you.”

Their
songs
included
the
sentimental
Streisand-Neil
Diamond
duet
“You
Don’t
Bring
Me
Flowers,”
Sinatra’s
snappy
“Nice
‘n’
Easy”
and
Dean
Martin’s
dreamy
“Sleep
Warm.”

They
helped
write
the
uptempo
themes
to
the
Nineteen Seventies
sitcoms
“Maude”
and
“Good
Times”
and
collaborated
on
phrases
and
music
for
the
1978
Broadway
present
“Ballroom.”
But
they
had been
finest
identified

their
contributions
to
movies,
turning
out
themes

remembered
more

the
films
themselves.

Might
Be
You,”

Crown
Affair”;
and,

“Best
Friends,”

James
Ingram-Patti
Austin
duet
“How
Do
You
Keep
the
Music
Playing?”

Their
peak
was
“The
Way
We
Were,”
from
the
Streisand-Robert
Redford
romantic
drama
of
the
similar
title.
Set
to
Hamlisch’s
moody,
pensive
melody
with
Streisand’s
voice,
it
was
the
top-selling
track
of
1974
and
an
prompt
customary,
proof
that
nicely
into
the
rock
period,
the
public
nonetheless
embraced
an
old school
ballad.

Fans
would
have
struggled
to
determine
a
image
of
the
Bergmans,
or
even
acknowledge
their
names,
however
they
had
no
hassle
summoning
the
phrases
to
“The
Way
We
Were”:
“Memories,
might
be
stunning
and
but
/
What’s
too
painful
to
bear in mind
/
We
merely
select
to
overlook
/
So
it is
the
laughter
/
We
will
bear in mind
/
Whenever
we
bear in mind
/
The
means
we
had been.”
The
Bergmans
received
three
Oscars

for
“The
Way
We
Were,”
“Windmills
of
Your
Mind”
and
the
soundtrack
to
Streisand’s
“Yentl”

and
obtained
16
nominations,
three
of
them
in

alone.

The
Bergmans
appeared
to
be
free
of
the
boundaries
and
tensions
of
many
songwriting
groups.
They
likened
their
chemistry
to
home tasks
(one
washes,
one
dries)
or
to
baseball
(pitching
and
catching),
and
had been
so
in
tune
with
every
different
that
they
struggled
to
recall
who
wrote
a
given
lyric.

“Our
partnership
as
writers
or
as
husband
and
spouse?”
Marilyn
informed
The
Huffington
Post
when
requested
about
their
relationship.
“I
suppose
the
facets
of
each
are
the
similar:
Respect,
belief,
all
of
that
is
mandatory
in
a
writing
partnership
or
a
enterprise
partnership
or
in
a
marriage.”
Besides
her
husband,
Bergman
is
survived
by
their
daughter,
Julie
Bergman.
