"Baby It's You"

OK, back to the 60's: Although this '61 Bacharach/Dixon/David ballad war first recorded by The Shirelles and covered by The Beatles on their first album, the highest-charting version was by Smith in '69, produced by Del Shannon and peaking at #5. The Shirelles took it to #8 and The Beatles to #7 UK and #67 U.S. in '63. The original working title was "I'll Cherish You".

Yesterday's answer: "Pictures Of Matchstick Men" by Status Quo.
