'Baby It's You' by Promises (1978)

For a long, long, long time now, maybe quite a few years, I've always had this song on my mind, which I've whistled to myself on the odd occasion. It had stayed with me from whenever it was popular, or from when I had heard it. I couldn't remember the name of it, and I couldn't remember the lyrics, except 'baby it's you...' That's it. On the odd occasion that I remembered it while web browsing and subsequently tried finding a song to download called 'baby it's you', I was never successful, it constantly eluded me.

Two days ago, I remembered again and decided to search in earnest. I looked up lyrics with those 3 words in them, trying to find something that seemed to fit what I could remember. My research finally met with some results! After a few uncertain websites that pointed me in the direction of a number of artists, I finally found reference to the song 'Baby it's you' by Promises. The lyrics seemed to fit, so I had to download it. Unfortunately, the file-sharing software I use was unable to help me. No one else had the song by Promises, so I searched for a web-based download of it.

Now, downloading songs from web pages is next to impossible. People just don't store songs on file servers and then make up web pages to allow you to download them. But surprisingly, I found a page where the song was available! I was shocked, and even more shocked to find a whole bunch of songs that I could download! (I ended up downloading 20-30 of them.)

The whole point of this entry is because I want to share with you what I think is an excellent song, and has stuck in my mind for many years. It's a great relief for me to finally find this song, and be able to play it at my leisure, rather than just whistle an aimless tune to myself.

If you'd like to listen to it as well, you can download the song from here. It's #0693. Right-click on the link to that song on that page and select Save As. Choose a folder location of your choice on your computer, but make sure you change the file extension from .jpg to .mp3 and then click on Save. It's only 3.6 Mb so it's not that big.

You can read the lyrics here.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I think Baby It's You is also a John Sayles movie, built around the song in some ways. A young Rosanna Arquette is in it.

She's plays an upper middle class girl who falls for a guy who wants to be a Frank Sinatra impersonator.
