Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Dixie Cups - Gee The Moon Is Shining Bright (1965)
The composer credits of Ellie Greenwich, Jeff Barry and Phil Spector give away that this 1965 single on Red Bird, produced by Greenwich and Barry, began life with Phil Spector and his Wall Of Sound, in this case the Ronettes. It was originally entitled Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love? and was scheduled as the Ronettes' first single in 1963. Spector didn't think it was a number one hit so it was shelved in favour of Be My Baby. It was released a year later on a single credited to Veronica (Ronnie of the Ronettes) and was covered by Sonny and Cher on their Look At Us album. The title line was dispensed with on the Dixie Cups version, the fourth single from their Chapel Of Love album. It reached 102 in the US charts.
