Somebody's Baby (4:37)

Cover of The Next Voice You Hear: The Best of Jackson Browne

From The Next Voice You Hear: The Best of Jackson Browne and 13 other releases

“Somebody’s Baby” is a 1982 song written and performed by Jackson Browne. It was Browne’s last top ten song, and his highest-charting as well, reaching #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1982. “Somebody’s Baby” was not released on any of Browne’s albums proper, but on the soundtrack to the film Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The film also featured the song at several key moments, mostly concerning the Jennifer Jason Leigh character’s misadventures with sex. “Somebody’s Baby” eventually made its way onto the Jackson Browne best-of compilation The Next Voice You Hear: The Best of Jackson Browne, and also appeared on The Very Best of Jackson Browne. An acoustic version of this song can also be found on his Solo Acoustic, Vol. 2 album, released in 2008. Browne’s fatherless youth is thought to be referenced in this song.
