Song of the Day: Barbara Lewis, “Baby, I’m Yours”

This is my first post in the "Love Is In Da Blog" series of music posts. I don’t know if there’s an official badge for it, so I made one with GIMP and a lot of patience that I don’t have right now…

Anyway the theme for today’s post is "Choose your own," and I’m picking Barbara Lewis’s hit from 1965, "Baby, I’m Yours." It was written by Van McCoy, who would have a hit about ten years later with "The Hustle." The orchestra backing her is directed by Bert Berns. The song reached #5 on the R&B chart, #11 on the Hot 100, and #7 on the Canadian Top 100.

I think this would make a perfect "first dance" song for a newly-married couple, but then, that’s just me.

  1. Yes, this is a very sweet song that you can dance to with your wife…well, she can dance and look at you while you smile at her. This is a lovely song. Hey…no tree in sight! I bet you are relieved that the January Blog thingy is done with.

    1. They asked us to fill out a survey at the end, and I gave them hell for some of the questions…

      Mary’s not much for dancing, either. We’re a perfect match. Probably why we’ve stayed together for so long,,, But ain’t it a pretty song? I was writing a piece where I was getting two people together, and that came yo mind….
