Two music industry legends joined forces to perform the hit song ‘Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head.’ The song written by Burt Bacharach is one of the biggest songs of the era.
Sir Tom Jones sits on a rocking chair with a western backdrop. He’s joined by Big Jim Sullivan on acoustic guitar as he starts the song, singing, “Raindrops are falling on my head, and just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed. Nothing seems to fit. Those raindrops are falling on my head. They keep falling.”
Another empty rocking chair is next to Tom, and after verse 1, Burt Bacharach shows up and sits down. The songwriter sings his own words while Tom looks on smiling.
The two men join in the chorus and sing a beautiful harmony together. Burt and Tom tap their feet, rock in their chairs, and share smiles. After they hold out the final note, Burt pats Tom’s leg.
The tune was written by Burt Bacharach with the help of Hal David for the 1969 film ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.’ The single released by B.J. Thomas reached number 1 on the charts.
Burt Bacharach won an Oscar for Best Original Song and Best Original Score. His popularity as a songwriter grew, and over 1,000 artists have recorded his songs over the years.
Seeing a young Tom Jones and Burt Bacharach join together to deliver an excellent rendition of the hit song is a real treat for music lovers. They capture the original feel of the late ‘60s hit record.
