“Have I ever told you
how good it feels to hold you
it isn’t easy to explian
and though I’m really trying
I think I may start crying
my heart can’t wait another day
when you kiss me I’ve just got to say

(Baby I love you)
come on baby
(baby I love you)
oh-ee baby
baby I love only you

I can’t live without you
I love everything about you
I can’t help it if I feel this way
oh I’m so glad I found you
I want my arms around you
I love to hear you call my name
oh tell me that you feel the same

(baby I love you)
come on baby
(baby I love you)
oh-ee baby
baby I love only you”.

Baby, I Love You is a pop song originally recorded by The Ronettes in 1963. The song was written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich, and Phil Spector, and produced by Spector. The single peaked at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and Cashbox Hot 100, and peaked at #11 on the UK Pop Chart. After their lack of success under contract to Colpix Records between 1961 and 1963, the Ronettes ended their Colpix contract and signed with Phil Spector‘s Philles Records in early 1963. During their first few months with Phil Spector, the Ronettes achieved mainstream success with the release of “Be My Baby” in August 1963, which climbed to number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Cashbox Hot 100. It was the success of “Be My Baby” which had Spector eager to do a follow-up for the Ronettes in the fall of 1963.
However, a problem arose when the Ronettes were booked to appear on Dick Clark‘s “Caravan of Stars” tour across the country. Phil Spector decided to keep lead singer Ronnie Bennett in California to record “Baby, I Love You” while the other two Ronettes, Estelle Bennett and Nedra Talley, went out on the tour with Dick Clark. Ronnie’s cousin, Elaine, took her place on the tour while Ronnie recorded the song at Gold Star studios in California. Since the other Ronettes proved to be unavailable for recording, Spector used Darlene Love and Cher to complete the backing vocals. The song also featured Leon Russell on piano. “Baby, I Love You” peaked at #11 in the UK during January 1964, at a time when the Ronettes were touring the UK as the support act to the Rolling Stones. The song was featured on the album Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes, which was released at the end of 1964. The song was also on the soundtrack of the film, Nine Months.
Andy Kim recorded the song for Jeff Barry‘s record label Steed Records on his 1969 album Baby I Love You. Kim’s version became a U.S. Top Ten hit, reaching #9 in 1969 and earned a gold record. Phil Spector produced the Ramones‘ cover version of the song which appeared on their 1980 album, End of the Century. This single reached #8 in the UK Singles Chart in 1980. In 2009, the song was used in a TV commercial for the drug Cialis”.
