Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) - Cher


Sonny Bono originally wrote this often covered song for Cher back in 1966. 'Bang Bang' was one of her first and earliest hits. Having discovered this song while watching Tarantino's Bill Kill, I just assumed it was more of an exclusive Nancy Sinatra standard. Boy, was I wrong. There are more than a few versions that I prefer, such as Terry Reid's guitar heavy adaption and Betty Chung's Chinese cover. This melancholy recording is a little scratchy, but worth listening for the cinematic violin accompaniment. Enjoy.
