Adair’s Art Picks – Week 2

Adair Simpson

Do I Love You performed by the Ronettes, produced/written by Phil Spector


This song is amazing. The guitar-led introduction accompanied with light orchestration leads in to lovely vocals and lyrics. The call and response in the pre-chorus is oh-so captivating, as it leads into the main chorus, with the most beautiful vocal harmonies I have heard. “Do I love you?” she wonders; “yes, I love you,” the background vocals reply.

This is the kind of piece that reels you in and takes you for a ride. Listen to it closely, you’ll hear something special.
