Composer Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David capped their conquest of the 1960s with this Academy Award-winning song in 1969. One of the highlights of the film 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid', the song was probably the most recorded piece of music of that era. Perry's version is soft and slow, light in style, and easy to listen to. And note the tongue-in-cheek counting to eight by Perry and the chorus, as a lighthearted jest at the fresh, totally different construction of the song.
