The Ronettes tune, Be My Baby has a far more interesting history than I’d realized. It was near the top of the charts the day President Kennedy was shot; two of the back up singers in the chorus were Sonny and Cher; and Ronnie Spector actually sang in Eddie Money’s Take me Home tonight the phrase, “Be my baby.” Huh.
The song is timeless. Play it for your teen today and they’ll start moving just like grandma did back in the 60’s. Ronnie Spector is the original bad girl of Rock’n’Roll and barely made it out of her marriage to Phil Spector. She’s a survivor.
Enjoy the weekend.
I just received the following wire from my generous Daddy; Dear Jack, Don’t buy a single vote more than is necessary. I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for a landslide.
