“Somebody’s Baby” is a song written by Jackson Browne and Danny Kortchmar and recorded by Browne for the 1982 Fast Times at Ridgemont High movie soundtrack. Reaching #7 on the US Billboard Hot 100 after debuting at #73 on July 31, 1982, the track would be Browne’s last top-ten song as well as the highest-charting single of his career, spending 19 weeks on the chart.

It reached #14 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, as well. In Canada, “Somebody’s Baby” peaked at number 16.The single was also released in Italy, Spain and Japan.

It has since been released on several of Browne’s greatest hits albums including The Next Voice You Hear: The Best of Jackson Browne and The Very Best of Jackson Browne. An unplugged acoustic version appears on Browne’s 2008 album entitled Solo Acoustic, Vol. 2.

I heard it on WSHE 103.5 (She’s Only Rock ‘n Roll) https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1395382632. They used to play the SHE-Sides at 5:00pm and the Midnight Concerts (Hello Lou Reed, Little Feat, Bruce Springsteen,) on Friday/Saturday nights. Then I would pop in to Yesterday & Today Records (original location, Bird & 63rd, Miami).
