Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #137 – “Hey Baby Doll,” from Danny Collins


137. “Hey Baby Doll,” from Danny Collins

It’s hard to write the right kind of throwaway catchy pop tune for a movie. Clearly they’re trying to make Al Pacino Neil Diamond and have this be his “Sweet Caroline.” And you get it immediately. And even if you want to hate this song, you can’t deny how catchy that hook is. And that’s the point. Dude’s been dining out on this song for 40 years. That’s what it’s supposed to be. It’s a perfect song for the film and the character.
