Tidy Tune #238: I Got You Babe - Holly Beth Vincent and Joey Ramone.



On this day in 1965, Sonny & Cher were at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'I Got You Babe', the duo's only UK No.1. Sonny Bono was inspired to write the song to capitalize on the popularity of the term "babe," as heard in Bob Dylan's 'It Ain't Me Babe.

There's been a few good covers of the song down through the years and this one by Holly and Joey is my favourite.
