Oh Oh I Love Her So

Album: Leave Home (1977)

Songfacts®:

  • The music was inspired by the Freddy Cannon song "Palisades Park," which was later recorded by the Ramones for their Brain Drain album. Perky songs from the '50s and '60s were a big influence on the group. >>

  • Running just 1:56 and with a very compact chorus, this song tells a story about falling in love by the soda machine at Burger King. The Ramones brand of punk rock was not so much about rebellion, but about presenting a different view. As such, their love songs were rather innocent, with endearing lines like "no one's gonna ever tear us apart cause she's my sweetheart."
