The hit song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” was performed by two of the biggest names in the music business. One of the most popular songs of the time was written by Burt Bacharach.
Sir Tom Jones is sitting in a western-style rocking chair. He starts the song by singing, “Raindrops are falling on my head, and just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed. It looks like nothing fits. These raindrops are falling on my head. They continue to fall.”
After the first verse, Burt Bacharach comes in and sits down in the empty rocking chair next to Tom. Tom smiles as the person who wrote the song sings his own words.
The two men join the chorus and sing together in a beautiful way. Burt and Tom smile at each other, tap their feet, and rock in their chairs. Burt pats Tom’s leg after they hold the last note.
Burt Bacharach and Hal David wrote the song for the 1969 movie “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” The single that B.J. Thomas put out went straight to the top of the charts.
Burt Bacharach won an Oscar for Best Original Song and for Best Original Score. Over the years, more and more people liked his songs, and more than 1,000 artists have recorded them.
Fans of music will love seeing a young Tom Jones and Burt Bacharach sing a great version of the hit song together. They get the feel of the hit record from the late 1960s.
