"Delilah" is a song recorded by Welsh singer Tom Jones in December, 1967. It was originally recorded by P. J. Proby in late November, 1967. Proby hated the song and refused to include it on his album Believe It Or Not, which was being compiled and recorded at the time. Proby's original version was released on the CD The Best Of The EMI Years ..., in 2008. The lyrics were written by Barry Mason and his wife at the time, Sylvan Whittingham, and the music by Les Reed, who also contributed the title and theme of the song. It earned Reed and Mason the 1968 Ivor Novello award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically.
