What's New Pussycat?

Music by Burt Bacharach, Lyrics by Hal David

Originally Performed by Tom Jones

"What's New Pussycat?" is the theme song for the eponymous movie, sung by Welsh singer Tom Jones, and written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1966, it lost to "The Shadow of Your Smile". It was Jones' third UK top 30 record, and peaked at number 11. In the US, "What's New Pussycat?" peaked at number 3, and was Jones' second entry on the Top 40.

The original single included a 13-second instrumental introduction, ending in the sound of shattering glass, but later issues omitted this introduction. It has also been performed by Bobby Darin, Steve Lawrence, Anita Kerr,[5] The Wailers and The Four Seasons. Barbra Streisand performed several lines in her "Color Me Barbra Medley" from the TV special and album Color Me Barbra.

    Release Date: 1965
