David Cassidy – Rock Me Baby

August 7, 2009 | 1972, Male

One of my biggest introduction to music in the 1970s came each Friday night with the Partridge Family. There are plenty of places to see songs from the show, including the DVD releases.

But not only was David Cassidy a star of the show he was also a singer with album and single releases of his own.

Rock Me Baby is the title song from his second album. As a single it was the follow up to How Can I be Sure.

The song was written by Peggy Clinger and Johnny Cymbal and unlike his previous singles, which were ballads, this one had a rocking beat.

It barely broke the Top 40 in the US topped at Number 38 , but just missed the Top 10 in the UK peaking at Number 11. In fact this was his last Top 40 song in the US in the 70s, although he continued to chart in the UK for another coupe of years.

Other than a few he did as the lead singer of songs for The Partridge Family, this is my favorite David Cassidy song.
