Be My Baby

It was 1963, I was 14 years old when one of the most popular girl groups, The Ronettes, released “Be My Baby.” The lead singer was Veronica Bennett, with backup from her sister Estelle Bennett and cousin Nedra Talley. Be My Baby was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999 and The Ronnettes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. They were the only girl group to tour with the Beatles.

I used to rock out and sing along with this song as a teenager and I still do. I used to have the beehive hairdo and the black eyeliner as well.
