Dears followers:

This began as a tribute to the fashion designer EDITH HEAD, but after checking a film like ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’, then appears the need to honoring to a genius of popular music of the 20th century as Burt Bacharach, and of course to the actors as Paul Newman, Katharine Ross and Robert Redford.

We can neglect the title of this movie, but everybody ever heard about the lyrics ‘Raindrops keep falling on my head’ the song sung by Billy Joe Thomas.

Although less known, but a ‘sublime poem’ sung by The Ron Hicklin Singers with  a “daba-daba-da” style. A true jewel able to make us smile and cry at the same time.
