9/12/15 Mash Up SUNNY Acoustic Duo 252nd day of 731 days of Sunny
MASH-UP ACOUSTIC DUO SUNNY SONG OF THE DAY, SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 2015
Questa è il nostro tributo del duo MASH UP a Bobby Hebb
Sunny fu composta da Hebb dopo il 22 novembre 1963: in quel giorno, oltre all'assassinio di John F. Kennedy, avvenne anche la morte di suo fratello Harold, ucciso a coltellate all'esterno di un night club di Nashville. Nella canzone l'artista intende esprimere la sua predisposizione a vedere le cose positive e solari della vita, anche di fronte a simili tragedie.
Il brano fu registrato negli studi della Bell Sound a New York e pubblicato come singolo nel 1966. Ebbe un successo immediato, tanto che nello stesso anno Hebb andò in tournée con i Beatles.
This is our (MASH UP) version of Bobby Hebb's composition. Sunny" is a song written by Bobby Hebb. It is one of the most covered popular songs, with hundreds of versions released. BMI rates "Sunny" number 25 in its "Top 100 songs of the century.
Hebb wrote the song in the 48 hours following a double tragedy on November 22, 1963, the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated and Hebb's older brother Harold was stabbed to death outside a Nashville nightclub. Hebb was devastated by both events and many critics say that those events & critically the loss of his older brother inspired the lyrics & tune. According to Hebb, he merely wrote the song as an expression of a preference for a "sunny" disposition over a "lousy" disposition following the murder of his brother
