This was written by Burt Bacharach for Peter Sellers’ character in the movie What’s New Pussycat? He told Record Collector magazine: “It was an instrumental first and then words were put on it. If it’s got a good melody it can always fit the lyric.” In the same Record Collector interview Bacharach discussed writing songs for movies: “I think if you’ve got a theme like ‘What’s New Pussycat?’ and that music comes from watching Peter Sellers and his craziness in that movie and you’re trying to make it that way and out words to it. Then you get Tom Jones to sing it, you get lucky. Here was a theme, which was basically an instrumental, and if it’s a good melody you’ll always fit words.” @Songfacts.
