"Sunny" was the biggest hit of Bobby Hebb's (born Robert Von Hebb in Nashville, Tennessee on July 26, 1941) career as a solo r&b/pop artist. "Sunny" went into the top five in Billboard's HOT 100 charts in the spring of 1966. Considered somewhat of an irony song, "Sunny" was written by Hebb on November 23, 1963 the day of President John F. Kennedy's assassination and the knifing death of Bobby's older brother, Harold (who he used to have song and dance team with) outside a Nashville nightclub. The international success of "Sunny" gained Hebb the right to be the only North American act to open for the Beatles during the Beatles' 1966 worldwide tour when it came to the U.S. that summer. "Sunny" has also been re-recorded many times and is listed as one of the top 25 tunes of the Rock 'n' Roll era. Although it might appear that "Sunny"'s success means that Bobby Hebb is a one-hit wonder, that isn't true, although he never had that kind of success on the pop charts, Hebb still had plenty of success on the r&b/soul charts.
