Story - iirc - someone in ArthurLee & Love saw the film - & remembered the Chords as best they could from that. Famously, Burt called Love's version 'neurotic' (didn't like it).

Seems most do. Was Love's breaththru - interesting to consider they started with a Bacharach tune with slightly unusual Rhythm - & where they got to with 'ForeverChanges'. Even 'Lounge' was among their influences there in LA...

'Raindrops Falling On My Head' - what can you say. The way it offsets their inevitable doom in the film ...the way all of that speaks to 1969. The way that tune took its residence in everyone's consciousness like it had always existed.
