Yeah, schmaltzy. By now, cliched, and synonymous with an entertaining if cheesily romantic movie. But the producer, while at the time of this '64ish recording was an incipient nut job, had also quickly become a real force in the record business. Phil Spector was developing his unique and evocative sound layering and worked with late-era Beatles collectively, and later separately with George Harrison, John Lennon and the Ramones. Anything he produced that's played here — or even howled in crappy karaoke bars — is a direct link to deep-dish American musical history.

Saw a great documentary on George Martin suffice to say Mr. Martin was not a fan of Spector.{#Lol}

20-odd years ago, I left my beloved Wellington seaside community (hey there, Breaker Bay) to study in Australia.  To help say goodbye to so many people I loved so much I organised an informal night of music at the local hall, with lots of friends providing the music.  The final act was a 5-piece (or maybe 6) band brought along by my friend Robbie Duncan.  I remember standing at the hall door watching as they carried all this big time gear into the hall during the set up.  Amps, speakers, keyboards, mixing desk, mic stands, lots of drums and guitar cases, cables everywhere.  And thinking "What the hell have I done?  This was supposed to be acoustic!".
The early part of the night went better than my wildest dreams.  By the time the final act came on, about 100 people were laughing, singing, dancing and having a great time.  I was standing at the back of the hall, musical duties over and pleasantly ripped thinking "This will be interesting, could go either way" when they launched into a cover of this song as their opening number.
Well, sometimes, the universe just comes up with things so special we are transported by the moment.  The band was tight from the first notes, the female lead singer nailed the vocals, all that fancy gear and sound system sounded incredible, the hall's acoustics were just right and the room went off.  I remember turning to my friend Kerry, no lover of the commercial pop song, and we both had huge smiles because everything was so right.  It sounded and felt fantastic.
Now, it may be cheesy.  It may be clichéd.  It may be commercial pop.  But if anyone slags this song within my hearing I will take them aside and forcefully explain how I once saw a performance of it define a moment for 100 people.  And yes, maybe you had to be there and possibly stimulant-affected but for those who were, it was transcendent.
Everyone's special music has it's own story.  Let's listen to it knowing that we all have our own stories, or gracefully PSD if you can't.  But let's stop dissing people here because their stories are different from ours.  We have social media and politicians for that.
Full respect to Bill and Rebecca!

Recently spent a week on a live-aboard in Hawaii. There was a 19 year-old working the ship. One night, he got out his ukulele and played this song for us. The memory is such a beautiful one that this could be an awful song and it would still make me smile. So sad. So evocative.
