“Be My Baby”

The Ronettes, a 1960s girl group from NYC, had their only Top Ten hit the week of Aug. 24, 1963, with their first released single produced by Phil Spector, “Be My Baby.”

TRIVIA: The song also features the first recording work ever done by Cher (she was invited to perform additional back-up vocals with The Ronettes. Her boyfriend, Sonny Bono, worked for Spector at the time).

Unfortunately for The Ronettes, none of their other singles (“Baby I Love You,” “The Best Part of Breaking Up,” “Walking In the Rain” and “Is This What I Get for Loving You?”) would ever make it into the US Top 20.

Here’s a performance of “Be My Baby” (and “Shout”) from the concert film “The Big T.N.T.” http://youtu.be/8-0upHlWfQ4
