Grammy and Oscar-winning songwriter Leslie Bricusse died on Tuesday. He was 90 years old. His many songs include “Pure Imagination,” which he wrote with Anthony Newley.

“When talking of Pure Imagination earlier this year, Bricusse said: ‘It’s a good thought for people, especially young people, to carry with them through life. You’ll be free if you truly wish to be at the end is, to me, the most important line ….. It’s a reflective thought on how to make a life work.’”

— “Leslie Bricusse, songwriter behind Goldfinger and Willy Wonka, dies at 90,” Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
