August 26, 1965 Sonny and Cher were at #1 on the UK singles chart!
So I got home at about 7 a.m. this morning after a good 4 hour drive from Cape Cod. We played a rocking party last night, but I’ll tell ya I’m wooped today. There was a time when I could play and travel 7 days a week, but now I’m going to need 2 days to recover. The one thing that saved the long drive home was listening to comedy youtubes. We listened to old Eddie Murphy, some recent Robin Williams and I laughed so hard at Dave Chapelle I almost had to pull the car over.
I’ve always loved this track, I Got You Babe, produced by Sonny Bono. A great song is a great song but how it is produced is crucial. Lately it seems the song can be crap but if the beat and the production are amazing it can be a Number one hit. It’s getting harder for me to distinguish whether I like the song or the production. I love Lady Gaga tunes cause I feel they nail both. I’m not so sure about some Britney Spears or Rihanna where I probably just like the beat and the production!
Well, Sonny Bono nailed it on this song. The song and the production!
