Little Man

Album: In Case You're In Love (1966)
Charted: 4 21
  • Sonny Bono was in a literal sense Cher's "Little Man" - he was 5 feet 5 inches tall to Cher's 5-foot-9. The couple was married at the time, and Bono wrote many sentimental love songs like this one for them to sing.
  • Sonny Bono recorded the track with session musicians in Los Angeles, but put down the vocals in London at EMI Studios (Abbey Road) when he and Cher arrived there for a promotional tour. When they performed the song on the British TV show Ready, Steady, Go!, they used cue cards for the lyrics, since the song was so new.
  • In 2015, this was used in a commercial for Amazon where a woman is looking to do something special for her miniature horse. She gets on the site and orders a doggie door so the horse can enter and leave at will.
