Post image for Review: Sunny as Recorded by Sophie The new CD single of Bobby Hebb’s classic “Sunny”, as recorded in the Mediterranean country of Malta by Sophie (Debattista found at,) is a dynamic, charging pop performance that display’s the singer’s appealing voice in a high energy dance setting with the title of the song repeated over producers Elton Zarb and Giles Squire’s quasi industrial backing track.

Information on Indigo's version of "Sunny"

  • This version is our "Sunny Song Of The Day" for June 25, 2012 on Bobby Hebb dot blogspot dot com Thank you. Editor, Joe VIglione

  • IN DIGO - Sunny (Bobby Hebb Cover)

  • Thank you for your interest. The Trio is Slowakian (Kosice/Bratislava) and their music is rough from the heart. Nothing like the mainstream, commercial "arts" industries of our days, which symbolizes the death of culture (spirit), love (fraternity) and economy (equity). Only very few people do recognize the quality of true music which expresses pain and optimism at the same time.
  • Hammer performance!

    From Google news - the new orchestrated cover album featuring "Sunny"

    Neben Filmmusik aus „Rocky“ (Gonna Fly Now) und aus dem Animationsfilm „Drachenzähmen leicht gemacht“ sind sowohl sinfonische Werke für Blasorchester wie „La Storia“ oder „Around the World in 80 Days“ auf der CD zu finden. Auch traditionelle Stücke wie die „Katharinenpolka“ von Kurt Gäble oder der „Fliegermarsch“ haben ihren Platz gefunden. Sogar ein Arrangement des modernen Poptitels „Sunny“ von Bobby Hebb und des Duke Ellington Klassikers „Caravan“ wurden auf der Veldener CD verewigt.
