BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID ("Dos hombres y un destino" in Spanish)
Do you remember the scene in which Paul Newman and Fay Dunaway are sharing a bike with herself on the crossbar and Newman steering? Absolutely lovely!
Raindrops keep falling on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling
So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he' got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are falling on my, head they keep falling
But there's one thing I know

Raindrops keep falling on my head

Because I'm free
Nothing's worrying me.

At the end, Sally and Patrick decide to stop spending so much time together, as nothing will come of it.

Arlo Guthrie - Alices's Restaurant song:
Every Thanksgiving radio stations all over the country play the song “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” (Alice’s Restaurant for short) off the album “Alice’s Restaurant” from singer/songwriter Arlo Guthrie. The song was released in 1967, and it’s been tradition ever since then to play it each and every Thanksgiving.
But what’s the story behind it? Why do people love this song?
“Alice’s Restaurant” recounts Guthrie’s true Thanksgiving Day adventure as a satirical, deadpan protest against the Vietnam War draft. On November 25, 1965, the 18-year-old Guthrie and his friend Richard Robbins, 19, were arrested by Stockbridge police officer William “Obie” Obanhein for illegally dumping some of Alice’s garbage after discovering that the town dump was closed for the holiday. Two days later, they pled guilty in court.
