Sonny and Cher’s ‘All I Ever Need Is You’ played on White House Plumbers Ep 4 as Fran and Gordon go to see LaRue

Sonny and Cher’s ‘All I Ever Need Is You‘ one of several stellar 1970s songs on White House Plumbers soundtrack

The latest episode of the political satire drama White House Plumbers aired yesterday with the show’s usual superb soundtrack that, this week, included Sonny and Cher’s ‘All I Ever Need Is You’.

That song was played on the car radio as Fran and Gordon are on their way to see LaRue, and are going over their plan — White House Plumbers, Episode 4, “The Writer’s Wife“.

Sonny and Cher’s ‘All I Ever Need Is You’ was a single from as well as the title track of the iconic pop duo’s fourth studio album.

An album that came out in 1971 on the Kapp and MCA record labels, and one that became a big hit.

It was an album of mainly cover songs, with ‘All I Ever Need Is You‘ originally recorded by Ray Charles earlier the same year.

Sonny and Cher’s ‘All I Ever Need Is You‘ big hit for the duo

Sonny and Cher‘s version of the song shot to #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and eventually spent 15 weeks in the Hot 100 before dropping off the chart.

The song also hit the top spot on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, as well as at #6 on the Cash Box Top 100.

In the United States alone, the song became one of the duo’s most successful singles, going on to also be certified Gold and to be nominated for two Grammy Awards.

Outside the U.S., ‘All I Ever Need Is You‘ continued its success, ranking high up various music sales charts in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Ireland.

Listen to Sonny and Cher’s ‘All I Ever Need Is You’ as heard on yesterday’s episode of White House Plumbers in the video, and on the duo’s album of the same name and, with Cher’s amazingly powerful vocals, you will quickly hear why.

The first four episodes of White House Plumbers are now airing on HBO.
