Chris Montez- Sunny.

Although Chris Montez had many hits, there is only one that really stands out in my heart. About a year and a half ago, my roommate, who was a big record collector, left some records laying around. The first one we put on was Chris Montez- Time After Time, ‘Sunny’ is the third song.

“Sunny” was originally written in 1963 by Bobby Hebb. There are literally hundreds of versions recorded. Chris Montez’s version is the first I recall hearing, and I fell in love. Sean and I both fell in love. I hope you do too.
