Be My Baby - Live singing performance by The Ronettes GoGo dancers choreography: Ward Ellis & Teri Robinson Date: November 29th, 1965; film recording for The Big T.N.T. Show Place: at the Moulin Rouge Club in Los Angeles, California.

At its heart, “Be My Baby” is as much about power and control as it is about romance. Today “Be My Baby” is as ubiquitous as a pop classic gets with its plinking pianos and castanets, its echo-chambered double vocals and massive drums. Those drums (boom-ba-boom) at the start, immortalized by drummer Hal Blaine (5 februari 1929), are a harbinger of something exciting is going to happen. Then suddenly it’s magic when the words are sung. And when the song is over there is this lingering believe of a happy ending: “he came around, and they hooked up”…. The song has been covered by everyone from John Lennon to Maroon 5. It’s been honored by the Library of Congress and inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. The group recorded the song in Los Angeles at Gold Star Studios and was released August 1963. Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys once said: “It’s the greatest record ever produced. No one will ever top that one.” “I was driving and I had to pull over to the side of the road — it blew my mind; “It was a shock.” Wilson estimates that he’s heard “Be My Baby,” by the Ronettes, more than 1,000 times. Just 21 and already frustrated with his band’s basic surf music, he bought the single and set about deconstructing its arrangement and production. Wilson: “I started analyzing all the guitars, pianos, bass, drums and percussion,” he said by telephone. “Once I got all those learned, I knew how to produce records.”
