RIP B. J. Thomas

B.J. Thomas, a handsome, curly-haired crooner who climbed the music charts in the late 1960s and ’70s, recording richly orchestrated, irresistibly catchy pop songs such as “Hooked on a Feeling” and “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” died May 29 at his home in Arlington, Tex. He was 78.

The cause was complications from lung cancer, said his publicists Jeremy Westby and Scott Sexton. Mr. Thomas announced in March that he had been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and was receiving treatment in Texas.

Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he'll never be able to drive in New Jersey.

This makes me sad. :(

I can't really claim I was a big fan except for Raindrops, which I cherish. I used to think that scene was filmed within 20 minutes of where I live, but somebody on the Bored set me straight. It was shot over by Grafton, UT -- certainly within a day's drive, but a lot more than 20 minutes.
