Lyricist and journalist Herbert Kretzmer, best known for his English-language adaptation of the musical Les Misérables, has died at the age of 95. The South African-born English writer also penned the lyrics to the 1960 song Goodness Gracious Me, made famous by Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren. And he worked with French singer Charles Aznavour on his 1974 hit She. Paying tribute online, fellow lyricist Sir Tim Rice described him as "a giant of his trade", adding: "RIP Herbie."
