In 1964, Gene Pitney continued his work with the songwriter-duo Burt Bacharach and Hal David. They had earlier written the song The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, which was written for the movie with the same name, but never used. The new song was not written for a movie, since there was no movie to write for. Therefore, Hal David came up with his own movie plot.
