Bonnie Jo Mason/Cher Bono - Ringo, I Love You 45 SingleUnder the pseudonym of Bonnie Jo Mason, a teen-aged Cher recorded the novelty record “Ringo, I Love You”. The single was Cher’s first record and was released in 1964 on Annette Records, with “Beatle Blues” (instrumenal) on the flip side.

Cher’s husband-to-be, Sonny Bono, worked as an assistant to record producer Phil Spector, and helped her get a job as a studio backup singer. This led to the record being produced by the famous (and later infamous)  Spector.

The songwriting for “Ringo, I Love You” is credited to P. Spector – P. Case – V. Poncia – P. Andreoli.
