Putting the ‘random’ in my random video posts, I just had to share this song. Maybe it’s all this talk about Kerouac. Maybe it’s because I’ve just started watching Mad Men. Maybe I just like oldies.* I’m betting it’s the last one.
Anyway, I heard this song a fair amount in my childhood (we listened to a lot of oldies), and I still love its beautiful melody and harmonies and its over-the-top theatrics. Pop music being pop music.
What’s not to love?
Plus, this video. Egad.
*I realize that “On The Road,” Mad Men and the Shangri-Las all represent distinctly different years. And I don’t care.
