Goodbye Burt #2…..selected Bacharach & David songs sung by B. J. Thomas


Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head (m. Burt Bacharach, w. Hal David)

From Wikipedia:

Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head is a song written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David for the 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.[3] The uplifting lyrics describe somebody who overcomes his troubles and worries by realizing that “it won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me.”[4][5]

The single by B. J. Thomas reached No. 1 on charts in the United States, Canada and Norway, and reached No. 38 in the UK Singles Chart.[3] It topped the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks in January 1970 and was also the first American No. 1 hit of the 1970s. The song also spent seven weeks atop the Billboard adult contemporary chart.[6] Billboard ranked it as the No. 4 song of 1970. According to Billboard magazine, it had sold over 2 million copies by March 14, 1970, with eight-track and cassette versions also climbing the charts.[7] It won an Oscar for Best Original Song.[3] Bacharach also won Best Original Score.

Be Thankful for What You Got (William DeVaughn) William DeVaughn, 1974

Just be thankful for what you’ve got
Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin’ the scene
With a gangsta lean
Gangsta whitewalls
TV antennas in the back
