- Sunny 1966
(Having just suffered the loss of his older brother Harold who was stabbed to death outside a nightclub in Nashville, Bobby Hebb, who wrote "Sunny" right after both the murder of his brother and the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, was inspired by his desire to pay tribute to his brother and to also try to maintain a sunny disposition in the face of tragic events. He later recorded "Sunny '76" which later became a minor R&B hit in 1976. Over the years, this immensely popular song has been covered by many other bands and artists.)
