100 Great Songs From The British Invasion: What’s New Pussycat?- Tom Jones. Tom Jones first hit ‘It’s Not Unusual’ went to #1 in the UK and $10 in the US early in 1965. Later in the year came his second US hit- ‘What’s New Pussycat? a song written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David- [who were turning out hits in the 60’s at an alarming rate.] ‘What’s New Pussycat’- went to #3 in the US- it would end up being his second highest charting hit- ‘She’s A Lady’ would go to #2 in 1971. Back when I was a little Hans I would get Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck confused. Later I got it straight- Tom Jones was the talented one.
