Aural Memorial to Burt Bacharach

Not many songwriters become iconic to the musical layman. Burt Bacharach did just that. Despite the fact that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was released 12 years before my birth Burt Bacharach’s music imprinted itself on my childhood through the song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” via B.J. Thomas’s rendition.

Later, he made another pair of impressions on me becoming a surprise mandatory ingredient of the first two Austin Powers films. His cameo amused me and I knew of him by name already. The appearances made him even more indelible.
