Ronettes, The - When I Saw You Lyrics




When I saw you that's when I know
I'd lose my mind over you
When I held you that's when I knew
I'd lose my mind over you

When I saw you I realized somethin'
I didn't realize
You got somethin', you got somethin'
That makes me say child child child

When I saw you that's when I knew
I'd lose my mind, lose my mind
I'd lose my mind over you

  1. Sean Mc Devitt

    What a wonderful group they were wonderful harmonising can't get enough of hearing them thanks for posting

  2. Tom Draper

    This may be the perfect Ronettes recording. Touching and powerful at the same time and an unmatched ending fadeout. Too bad it was a flip side...

  3. Jorge Estomba

    Pure beauty, magical, spellbinding !!!
    Its the trademark of the best ever - The Ronettes !!!!!

  25. Stacy Taylor

    My wedding song. Love it so much.

  26. Tommy Truth

    The only thing wrong with this song? The same thing wrong with a lot of them back then----they were too short. Songs were only 2 or 2 and 1/2 minutes so that the AM stations could run more commercials. Imagine if they had done an extended version of it, like what became popular in a few years with rock on the FM stations.

  27. Rory Gibbons

    Best woman's group ever

  28. Roger Farmer

    good old days that will never be again thank you God for letting me live through them

    BEAUTIFUL SLOW DANCE SONG TO BE IN LOVE WITH THAT SPECIAL PERSON, SMILE!!

  31. harryl5

    the very talented ronettes..Ronnie I love you

  32. Mikael Vitaly Vyacheslav

    Phil Spector has brought wonderful music to world .He spends his whole life as a successful producer and writer . No one should go through the weird things Ronnie went through during her marriage to Phil Spector. But she has been no angel herself, making horrible life choices . She has brought a lot of things on herself..just look at her attitutes she stalks like a street low class uneducated big mouth slut from the gutters has zero social skills If it was not for Phil spector ronnie and the othe two would never made it to anything in life . And remember, Ronnie saw Phil daily for years before they married. Don't tell me all of his traits came on like the flip of a light switch. She wanted to live the rich-and-famous lifestyle. She rolled the dice going for the "money" Rich and Famous ,live in a big masion . The dice came up snake eyes. Get over it ! The Ronnettes would never have made it ...if it wasn't for Phil Spector .Why she still carries Spectors last name why ? she low class from the gutters ! little goldigger who never done anything after she divorced Phil Spector ! nothing !.

    ...You know, as much as they sit there and knock him as a little King, the truth is that these women still were lured toward his MONEY/status, and sucked up to it. The MONEY as always (like the forbidden fruit), they want it bad, so bad that they are ah slave to it and don't even know/or see it.
    If he didn't have that MONEY, they wouldn't give him the time of day.

    Back ground singers sounds like Jackie Jermaine. N. Tito. N lead singer is. RON CARUSO super groove

  51. Savadorason1

    -OMG, anybody who doesn't love this has no heart or soul.

  52. Conrad Cadorna

    The Ronettes sang "Be My Baby" when I was thirteen and I was hooked. Then came "Walking in the Rain". I couldn't help but love them. Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys was so mesmerized by the Ronettes that he actually wrote "Don't Worry Baby". Phil Spectre, the quintessential control freak of a manager and producer rejected it. As destiny would have it, the Beach Boys sang it and made it into one if their greatest hits. The Ronettes would have released more hits and claim more fame if it were not for Phil Spectre. Notwithstanding this fact, they are stil one of the greatests - hands down.

    Marlin Williams

    But Ronnie has covered that song and did a wonderful job with it too.

  53. joan hughes

    WOW!! I'd lose my mind over you!! what a song and voice, LUV IT!!!! joan (Philly Girl) 5/27/17

  59. Michel

    The thrill is now, I love

  60. Michel

    thank'''''''''''''s great song

  61. Drummer C

    Ronnie Spector loved the singing styles and voices of Frankie Lymon and the lead singer of a group called the Schoolboys. I think you could attribute her voice to theirs and she would not be insulted at all. Checkout the Schoolboys recording of I'm so Young. The Ronettes recorded that song years after the Schoolboys who recorded it in the 1950's. you will hear the similarities in their voices.

    Drummer C

    I said the Schoolboys but meant the Students in the above post. I always get those two groups confused. While I'm at it, I'll bet Ronnie Spector also liked the Schoolboys as their lead also sounded like Frankie Lyman and the lead singer of the Students.

  62. Cynthia's Channel

    This song-This group was my favorite .. Awesome song... "WHEN I SAW YOU" WHEN I LOVED YOU... Wonderful ...

  63. RIEN À SIGNALER

  69. ShyeNYC

    God help me because I can't stop pressing replay lol. This has to be one of the most hauntingly beautiful songs I've ever heard. It's less than 3 minutes long and yet it packs such a powerful punch! I wish there was a live performance somewhere on YT

    Shukin Andjivin

    There are NO GROUPS OR SOLO SINGERS ALIVE, who can match their sound or class to this day!

    Rick rick

    ShyeNYC Good taste!

  70. Dan Dunn 46

    Grabbed my girl at a highschool dance before we knew this song...My date said: Hey! This must be the Ronettes! So I thought WOW! Great slow dance song! All of you gotta hear this in a gymnasium echo-ing out of those speakers!

  71. alan murr

    I never heard this song before which makes me realize that if you hear Ronnie sang any good song of the past that you never have heard, YOU WILL LIKE IT!

    Tommy Truth

    For sure.

  72. Gebbaro Deluca

    My second fave song by them. Brought alive again in the brilliant HBO biopic Phil Spector.

  73. Craig Nehring

    I can imagine all the guys & gals doing the "prom hang" slowly dancing to this

  85. JACK BENNY

    Favorite of the Ronnettes, truly mystical, enchanting per previous reviewer

  86. marco39

    Il giradischi suonava, le ragazze aspettavano di ballare. Quando tu le invitavi, ti rispondevano con un sorriso e nei loro occhi puliti brillava un che d'intesa, non avevano paura a mostrarti l'anima. 

  87. Kenya Nkhrumah

    So enchanting. Sensual. Heartbreakingly deep. A one-of-a-kind artist and a majestic Lady. Have Mercy!!!

  88. Cynthia's Channel

    great voice.

  91. mad largetrks

    Are they sisters ? two of them kinda look alike

  92. Eddie Raines

    I believe she's singing to me.

  93. Dr. Kaye L

    Phil Spector just lost it somewhere along the way. He was a musical genius, but he was not a good man, towards women. Watch Ronnie speak of their marriage, here on YouTube, Her mother had to get out of that relatioship "I would be dead if my Mom

  94. Alan Green

    WHAT A BEAUTIFUL VOICE RONNIE SPECTOR ( LEAD SINGER) HAD.

  95. luxyaltz219

    Lovely ,this instantly takes one back to a different time and place ,the string arrangement ,production , vocal are simply wonderful .
