"Baby I Love You" by The Ronettes.

OK, back to the 60's: This '63 release was The Ronettes' 2nd single after the hugely successful "Be My Baby". A Barry/Greenwich composition, it was produced by Phil Spector featuring his trademark "wall of sound". It was released shortly after JFK's assassination when the nation was not in the mood for upbeat songs so it only peaked at #24. Veronica (Ronnie), her sister Estelle and cousin Nedra were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in '07. Cher and Darlene Love & The Blossoms added background vocals with Leon Russell on piano. Dave Edmunds' ('73) and The Ramones' ('80) covers were commercially more successful than the original version. Andy Kim's rendition hit #9 in '69.

Yesterday's answer: "Al Di La". Translates as "Beyond" in English and "Mas Alla" en espa~ol. WAY up there on the all-time 60's makeout song hit parade.
Absolutamente! Los Latinos hacian una version bien chevere en los bailes!
