Original score composed by Burt Bacharach.
Bacharach's score for this Paul Newman/Robert Redford classic is probably his best-known film work, as it contains the instant standard "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head." "Raindrops," like the similarly infectious "On A Bicycle Built For Joy" is sung in the film by B.J. Thomas. The rest of Bacharach's score is equally impressive, slyly echoing the great scores of the John Ford westerns of the '40s in much the same way the film itself plays with the conventions of the genre.
"Not Goin' Home Anymore," in particular, has the elegiac feel so integral to westerns, while "South American Getaway" has a bossa-nova groove more in keeping with the era in which the film was shot. Though Bacharach is justifiably best known as a songsmith, his film scores are equally impressive, with BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDACE KID standing as one of his finest.
