    I remember Raindrops from my early childhood. It was a catchy tune even for a very young person like myself. I think he went on to have a number of hits in the country music genre. RIP BJ Thomas.

    He was a BAMF. Loved his voice.

    As a younger Gen-X-er I’m stunned he was only 78.

    I mean “Raindrops...” is an oldie to me and it’s over 50 years old. I just always figured an “old” dude sung the song, not a 25-26 year old back in 1969.
