...random thoughts on music, film, television, sports, or whatever else pops into my head at any given moment.
Ladies and gentlemen, Del Shannon and the invisible horns, performing the great "Runaway." The #1 song in America, this week in 1961.
My 10 year old daughter, reading this over my shoulder, just said, "They had cameras way back then?" I can't think of it at the moment, but what movie had this tune in the soundtrack? I'm racking my brain on that one. Thanks, Jeff.
LOL! I know that it was in American Graffiti, and it also served as the theme song for Michael Mann's short-lived TV series "Crime Story" - a re-recording by Shannon, singing with a much deeper voice.
Great song. Incredible footage.
