Wikipedia:
Billy Joe Thomas, or BJ, had mainstream success in 1968 with Hooked on a Feeling, which featured the sound of Reggie Young’s electric sitar and was first released on the album On My Way. Hooked on a Feeling became Thomas’s second million-selling record. A year later, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid featured Thomas performing the Bacharach/David song Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head, which won the Academy Award for best original song that year and hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1970. Its sales also exceeded one million copies, with Thomas being awarded his third gold record.
