Through the rain, the sleet, the snow

I got you babe.

Through the tempest, the hailstone and storms,

I got you babe.

Through the tough times and pain

I got you babe.

Through the laughter and moments of madness

I got you babe.

Through everything life may throw at us

I got you babe!


I’d always loved Cher’s voice and while the kids were screaming downstairs, (they’re on half term break) I sneaked upstairs and immersed` myself in their song, ‘I Got You Babe.’ It was nice, simple and full of love.Β  Though Sonny (Cher’s former husband) Β passed away a few years ago, and they did divorced before his passing, I believe Cher and Sonny truly cared for each other. You can listen here if you want. πŸ™‚ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80QHRTQ3Kmw

This week, I hope we’ll all find what would cheer our hearts. It would also be nice to send cheers to others. I wish you peace and joy friends. Have a fantastic week.

Much love, always!

    They were always favorites of mine. I was sad when they divorced, and even more so when he died in a skiing accident! πŸ™‚

  5. Have always been huge Sonny and Cher / Cher fans !! I have always enjoyed the simplicity of that song as well !! Thanks for reminding me, had not thought of it in years !!! I agree, they may have divorced, but they seemed to remain dear friends and she was devestated when he passed away !!

    Have a wonderful half-term and let’s hope the weather improves, at last! Great song this, one of my favourites, and beautiful photo too. Blessings to you and your family Seyi πŸ™‚

  7. Sonny and Cher were still friends until the day he died. Sonny was much older than Cher and was more of a father image to her. I read this some years ago.

      You were right, Sonny was older but not a lot. I watched the film and they were so lovely. Cher was a little wild, and for the gentle Sonny, they were a mismatch. But I guess they love each other in spite of their differences.

    It’s funny, when I saw the title of this post, I started singing that to myself πŸ™‚

    I don’t know why this always stuck with me, but I always wanted it to have been number one when I was born rather than the one that was. As that was boring hehe.

    Hope you have a great week with the kids

    • Seyi sandra says:

      It is a catchy tone. I thought it was number one in the UK and US, although I don’t know when that was; it could be 1965…

      I intend to enjoy the week as much as I could! πŸ™‚ Hope you’ll have fun too. πŸ™‚

        My kids have gone to their mum’s until Friday. Was hoping to have some time with them but will have to make do with Friday evening and Saturday. Am looking forward to Saturday day time when I see a friend though. Maybe not having the kids here will give me time catch up

      • Seyi sandra says:

        I hope you would have fun whenever they’re around, and you? You can take yourself out for a treat or like you said, see a friend. My warmest regards to them when they come back! πŸ™‚

      • Al says:

        Unfortunately after the totally crap day I’ve had today, the only thing I have is … well, knowledge that it is now tomorrow.

      • Seyi sandra says:

        I’m sorry to hear that Al; had a trying day today, and I’m still working hard to drag myself to do normal things. But these things happens once in a while – that’s what makes life unpredictable.

        Hope you’re good today. πŸ˜‰

      • Al says:

        I saw something on Facebook today which I shared – When something goes wring in your life, just yell “PLOT TWIST” and carry on πŸ™‚

      • Seyi sandra says:

        Oh Al, I hope it works!!!! πŸ™‚

  9. That song lives on – it’s wonderful and you bring new clarity to it here x

  10. ledrakenoir says:

    Agree Cher have an amazing voice – enjoy your day my fiend, best wishes from here… πŸ™‚

  11. firstwds says:

    Cheers to your heart! Keep creating! Thank you for your words.

  12. firstwds says:

    Have many people noticed the tiny smiley face in the bottom right corner of your page? Great!

  13. RoSy says:

    I like this song & I like how they sang it together.

    May you & the kids enjoy the half term break.
    Cheers πŸ™‚

  14. Never knew the full lyrics. πŸ™‚

    Parents in America will be experiencing the same thing soon, with Spring Break just around the corner. I used to perform that song in full costume. It’s fun to imitate Cher’s voice and stage presence – flipping that long, black hair of hers. πŸ™‚ I hope you have a great time with your family this week!

    • Seyi sandra says:

      Thanks Anita. I was happy for the half term break but now? I can’t wait till they go back. Couldn’t do much work. πŸ™‚

      I don’t know what I like most about Cher; her voice or hair! She’s gorgeous. I hope your week has been great so far!
      Much love. πŸ™‚

    Well that song will be in my head all week now, thanks for that hehe. I see you are keeping with the snow in your posts…I’m sure we shall have some soon.

  18. Cheers to you! I got you Babe was a wonderful song which I remember well. Thank you for including a bit of nostalgia. β™₯

  19. great post Ms.Seyi and cool song from Sonny and Cher!

  20. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the
    hang of it!
