boney m sunny

This song has made a long journey before ending up with Boney M. It was written in 1966 by Bobby Hebb, when his brother was stabbed to death and president Kennedy was murdered, both happening in 1963 in 48 hours. He then wrote the song. It took some time to release it, but 3 years later it was released and it made him go on tour with the Beatles. In 1976 he updated the song to a disco version. In that same year Boney M. came with a cover of the original version, which was on their debute album. It followed the hit Daddy Cool, and this song became a hit, too. The song has been recorded by many other artists, like Frank Sinatra, Cher, Ella Fitzgerald, The Four Seasons, The Four Tops and many others. Enjoy the Boney M version:
