Bobby Hebb, composer of 1966 R and B Hit ‘Sunny,’dies at 72

Bobby Hebb, the composer of the R & B classic, Sunny, died in Nashville last Tuesday. Bobby was 72 years old. His hit song Sunny went to No. 2 on the Billboard charts back in 1966. Hebb actually opened for The Beatles on their last tour in the U.S.

I loved the song when it came out, as did other musician associates of mine. We worked the tune up and wrote out all the lyrics by hand; it was that good. A keeper. As I see it, it`s an optimistic ode to a possibly fiction lady by the  name of Sunny, who is able to pick up this troubled man, who`se been a lost soul in a ‘world of hurt.’

“Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain. Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain. The dark days are gone and the bright days are here. My sunny one shines so sincere. Sunny one so true, I love you.”

Apparently, Hebb`s brother was killed outside a Nashville nightclub; this happened in the fall of 1963 and John Kennedy had been assassinated only a few days before. The writing of the song acts as a catharsis for Bobby Hebb, who had experienced both personal and national tragedy in such a very short timespan.

I might add, that many other recording stars have covered Sunny. That list can include: Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Dusty Springfield, Wilson Pickett, Jose Feliciano and Cher. Oh yea, I almost forgot, I covered it too. Please be sure to pick up this finger-snapping classic, it will lift you up and brighten up your day!
