Cher and her then-husband Sonny Bono released “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” in 1966. Their original song is the second single off Cher’s “The Sonny Side of Chér” album. Also, it’s one of Cher’s biggest-selling singles, peaking at No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a single week.
