Live From Dayton,Ohio France -- It's a Particularly Obnoxious Early Clue to the New Direction

Well, I've just arrived in the land of the Ignoble Frog and I'm seriously jet-lagged.

That being the case, I offer my ├ępuisement as an excuse, however lame, for asking you to enjoy -- from 1965 -- the late Phil Spector wannabe/schlemiehl Sonny (Bono) and the still living (albeit made of 100% recycled plastic) Cher. With their classic ode to togetherness against the odds "I Got You Babe."

Okay, off to find a croissant or something.

In the meantime, be assured that despite the current political situation here a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will still be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

No, no, etc.

Given the time difference between Paris and the States, and given that as a result I'm ready for bed, here's a final clue:

It has to do with the song as heard in a specific context.

Is there a "Groundhog Day" tie-in here? Hmm, it was the wake-up music in that movie... all songs to be about morning, or waking up?

If you're going for some kind of high difficulty rating, triple-gainer-with-double-reverse-twist-or-whatever, howzabout a morning/wake-up song from each time zone between Paris and... New York, or California? I'm sure Cape Verde and Iceland have offerings that would fit!
