Remembering Butch Cassidy’s Controversial Smash Hit, “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head”

Watching the scene on a moviola, Bacharach knew the song would start with a ukulele, he wrote in his autobiography, Anyone Who Had a Heart. “I wrote the entire melody, and the only words that kept running through my mind from top to bottom were ‘Raindrops keep fallin’ on my head,'” he recalled.

RIP Scott Walker

As vocalist with the Walker Brothers, Scott Walker introduced UK audiences to “Make It Easy on Yourself,” which became a No. 1 hit in 1965. While his popularity diminished over time, his creative output never waned and he became a cult artist in the 90s and 00s with a series of challenging, increasingly abstract records. RIP Scott.

Bacharach’s anecdotes added a lot of entertainment throughout the evening. As when he described working with Aretha Franklin on the song “Falling Out of Love,” and telling her “It’s in G major.” “No, it’s not,” she replied, informing him that the key needed to be changed (and you may be sure that it was).
