I Got You Babe By Sonny & Cher

It’s not so much that Salvatore Philip Bono and Cherlyn Sakisian LaPierre had a number one hit as Sonny & Cher but what happened to them afterward.

They has a hit television series together. Sonny was a member of Congress before tragically dying in a skiing accident. Cher won an Oscar for Best Actress and had three solo number one hits. She remains a Las Vegas concert attraction.

They may have dressed the part during the hippie/psychedelic era of the 1960’s but they were at heart, a pop duo. Their “I Got You Babe” became the number one song in the United States August 14, 1965, and there it remained for three weeks.
