On this day 50 years ago in 1965, Sonny and Cher released their iconic hit, I've Got You Babe as a single from their first album Look at Us. The song is recognized as one of the greatest duets in Rock and Roll history and as a defining anthem of the early hippie counterculture movement. I've Got You Babe would quickly reach #1 on the Billboard Top 100 in the United States, and would go gold and sell over one million copies in a matter of weeks. The song would also reach the top spot in the United Kingdom and Canada.
Cher sang a version of the song in 2014 on her Dressed To Kill Tour with a video of Sonny and a recording of his vocals. Sonny Bono died in a skiing accident in 1998; he was a popular Republican Congressman from California in the U.S. House of Representatives at the time.
