My Baby Baby


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I promise to get back to the Beatle pastiches again soon, but this one's too fun not to share -- as proven by "Sweet Mary Jane", songs of other '60s genres burble through my head on occasion, and one night I had a song that just screamed "Lesley Gore would've recorded me if I'd been around back then" pop into my head and wouldn't let go until I recorded it.

Featuring the vocal talents of Diane with Elaine and Cindy as backups -- I call them my Jewels, and you'll hear more from them soon enough (where I've transformed Diane into Lesley Gore here, I have one where Elaine became Ronnie Spector for me, and I'm working on one with Cindy that transforms her into Dee Dee Sharp). Everything is MIDI from me except the sax, played by my good buddy Pete.

This one was particularly ear-wormy for me.

Lyrics
My baby baby's got a way of making me feel special
My baby baby's got a way of treating me so good
Like a true love should

(Does he hold you tight?)
Yeah, all through the night
He knows how to treat a girl just right
(Does he love only you?)
Yes he's honest and true
And he always seems to know exactly what to do

My baby baby's got a way of making me feel special
My baby baby's got a way of treating me good
Like a true love should

(Are his kisses sweet?)
Yes, they're quite a treat
I feel it all the way to the toes on my feet
(Do you get your way?)
Each and every day
And he listens to every single word I say

My baby baby's got a way of making me feel special
My baby baby's got a way of treating me good
Like a true love should

Sometimes I wonder
Why he is good to me
Then I look in his eyes and
Love is all I see

(instrumental break)

(Does he make your toes curl?)
Boy, you know it girl
I'm the luckiest person in the whole wide world
(Is he really so fine?)
He drives me out of my mind
(Man, oh, man, how I wish he was mine)

My baby baby's got a way of making me feel special
My baby baby's got a way of treating me good
Like a true love should

My baby baby's got a way of making me feel special
My baby baby's got a way of making me feel special
(Repeat and fade)

You've captured the pop feel perfectly, with a light feel and a bounce that calls for a transistor radio and sunny day on the beach. Kudos all round guys.

Ear wormy? You bet. The ladies are perfect, tune is period true, and Pete carries his solo with cool verve.

A lovely trip down nostalgia lane. Thanks!!

Felt all the way to the toes on MY feet
which were tapping the whole time. Man, you are da bomb with these pastiches (da bomb is a more recent term meaning cool, groovy, fab ;-) Good fun John: the lyrics are a treat as well and could easily have been written 50 years ago (Yikes! Is it really that long?)

Amazing.
Sounds like a hit from 50 years ago, not a new composition at all. Once again I'm blown away by your understanding of the style of the period. Great singing and sax work too, so please pass my compliments to those performers!

This is refreshing to hear, totally different to what we usually hear on MJ.
Thank you for putting a smile on my face while I listen to this this warm Australian morning :)

like a true love should
love the way you do this straight up without the irony that would accompany the same tune done by the kind of indie band that would do this tune today. now i've got to go and listen to your other posts. vocals just kill. very cool.
