Song of the Day – “I’m Nobody’s Baby Now” – Reparata & the Delrons

A bit of 1966 girl-group magic from Reparata & the Delrons. They formed originally at a Catholic school in Brooklyn, and the lead singer named herself after one of the nuns, Sister Mary Reparata.

Their only (minor) hit came with “Whenever a Teenager Cries” in 1964, but this is such a classic of the genre because it hits all the signature hits of a girl-group record, from the spoken bridge to the Spector-ish “wall of sound” production. (With Hash Brown and his Orchestra. Heh.)
