The supernatural songwriting team of Burt Bacharach + Hal David wrote this song some time in the mid-60s. Herb Albert sang "This GUY Is In Love With You" on a TV show in '67. Dionne Warwick did a sweeter version the next year, and Aretha and a slew of other people did covers as well.
I'm not extremely fond of most of them. Many of the performances are ...cold, distant.
It's like they don't really understand the words; like karaoke in another language; like reading Shakespeare in High School, before you'd ever been (or even thought you were) in love.
But I adore Dusty Springfield's version! That one nails it for me. That was the inspiration for Nonplus' rendition.
