Song Lyric of the Day (Bacharach and David, on ‘The Blues They Send to Meet Me’)

“But there's one thing I know:
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me,
It won't be long 'til happiness
Steps up to greet me.”—"Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head,” lyrics by Hal David, music by Burt Bacharach, first performed by B.J. Thomas on the “Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid” Soundtrack (1969) 

Remembering American composer, producer, pianist—and Oscar-winner for this gem of a song—Burt Bacharach (1928-2023).
