If you've watched movie kill bill (Volume I), you might have noticed some "Folk Rock" music being played in the opening credits. Don't remember? It's ok! I'm here to introduce you to this sweet Rock song of Sixties, which has been re-recorded by around 60 different Singers since 1966. "I was five and he was six We rode on horses made of sticks He wore black and I wore white He would always win the fight Bang Bang- He shot me down Bang Bang- I hit the ground Bang Bang- that aweful sound Bang Bang- My baby shot me down" This beautiful song "Bang Bang (My baby Shot me down)" , sung by American Singer CHER (Written by her husband) was second number from her Album "The Sonny Side of Cher". Let's cut to the chase. The song topped charts of that time and numerous artists around the world have recorded their versions of the song thereafter (lately in 2016). A well deserved milestone for such an epic song. Some more beautiful lines: "Music played and people sang Just for me the church bells rang Now he's gone, I don't know why And 'till this day, sometimes I cry He didn't even say goodbye He didn't take the time to lie Bang Bang- I shot him down Bang Bang- He hit the ground Bang Bang- That aweful sound Bang Bang- I shot My baby down" Here's the youtube link to the song (Buddha Bar Version - I found it ecstatic) Enjoy the song in background. Respond if you liked. Also, i never understood the true context of the song. Would love to hear. Happy listening!

Well, when you shoot a guy down, you just eliminate him from your life due his not treating your right. Well, that is the best I can do with this one.

Not just these beautiful lines, but the music in the background also. I've been in love with the song for years.

I remember this song by Cher. It was one of her biggest hits. Of course by today's sensitive PC standards, the song is offensive.
