Song of the Day: 'Baby, Now That I Found You' by the Foundations

As much as I adore "Build Me Up Buttercup" -- sung by Colin Young -- I'd have to argue that the Foundations' best single is today's SOTD, which is performed by the band's original lead vocalist, Clem Curtis.

Did you know …
Part of the song was written in the same bar of a Soho tavern where Karl Marx is supposed to have written Das Kapital. The lyrics are a plea that an unnamed subject not break up with the singer.
"Baby, Now That I Found You" peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1967.
