Baby, I Love YouRamones
“Baby, I Love You” by the Ramones
In hindsight, Phil Spector was the wrong man to make a Ramones album. His painstakingly lush production ran counter to the Ramones’ seat-of-the-pants propulsion. And it didn’t help that Spector was fucking crazy. There’s rumors he pulled a gun and held the band hostage at his house, rumors it’d be easier to dismiss if he hadn’t pulled that kind of shit a dozen times before. He’s currently in prison for shooting some poor woman in the head.
But: He loved Joey Ramone’s voice. Joey, who grew up listening to Spector’s old Pop records. Something clicked. Spector brought in his trusted sessions musicians, and Joey covered “Baby, I Love You” by The Ronettes. If you’re expecting a Ramones song, you’ll be sorely disappointed. But I think you’ll be pleased if you hear this for what it is: Joey Ramone’s first solo work.
