“The Beat Goes On” is a song written by the late Sonny Bono and released by Sonny & Cher as a single in 1967. The song peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 January 14, 1967. The song was sung at Bono’s funeral and the phrase appears on his tombstone.
In 1982 Don Was of Was (Not Was) produced a cover version of the song featuring Detroit gospel singer Carol Hall on vocals and a recording artist listed as Orbit. Orbit was a teenager named Luis Resto who did all the instruments. From there Resto went on to be an original member of Was (Not Was) and has worked closely with rapper Eminem since his third major-label album ‘The Eminem Show’. Resto won an Oscar for writing the song ‘Lose Yourself’ from the 8 Mile Soundtrack.
