    See and hear also Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.
    See a very cool scene involving bikes and bulls and romance. Great. It was removed by the user! The song is part of the soundtrack to the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Also removed by the user perhaps because YOU TUBE demanded it.
