Billy J. Kramer


Lots of people took a swing at this Burt Bacharach/Hal David composition. Dionne Warwick's of course is the most famous but there were many respectable versions. Among them were covers by the Everly Brothers, Box Tops, Anita Harris, Sandie Shaw, The Carpenters, Astrud Gilberto, Cilla Black, The Dells, Stan Getz, The Shadows, Connie Francis and Dwight Yoakum. This one by Billy J. Kramer will always be my favorite.

anybody who takes a swing at a Bacharach/David song is an a-hole; those guys were gods...i missed this song somehow but i love this rendition by Billy J and the boys...
