Runaway

“Runaway” was a #1 hit for Del Shannon in 1961. Although he had some follow-up success (Little Town Flirt and Hat’s Off to Larry), nothing equaled the popularity of this tune. Del Shannon battled substance abuse for much of his life and sadly committed suicide in 1990 at the age of 55.

The Ventures included a cover of this classic on their 1963 album “Let’s Go!”. While not a cover of their arrangement, my version is certainly in the Ventures, surf-rock style.
