I Got You Babe

I Got You Babe by Sonny & Cher was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, August 26, 1965 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Sonny Bono was an up-and-coming record producer when he got Cher a job with Phil Spector as a session singer. They started dating and moved in to their manager's house, where Bono would write songs on a piano in the garage. He came up with "I Got You Babe" and wrote the lyrics on a piece of cardboard. Cher didn't like it at first. She recalled to Billboard magazine: "Sonny woke me up in the middle of the night to come in where the piano was, in the living room, and sing it. And I didn't like it and just said, 'OK, I'll sing it and then I'm going back to bed.'" Sonny changed the key in the bridge to fit her voice and she loved it.
