Keep Searchin’

“Keep Searchin’ (We’ll Follow the Sun)” was written and recorded by Del Shannon in 1964. It was his second biggest hit, breaking into the top 20 in 1965. “Runaway” was his #1 hit in 1961.

My arrangement is but it retains much of the feel of the original.

Del Shannon’s personal story is rather sad. He was an alcoholic, which interfered with his professional obligations. He still managed to maintain his career, performing through the 1970s and 80’s.

Suffering from depression, for which he was taking Prozac, Shannon took his own life on February 8, 1990, killing himself with a .22-caliber rifle at his home in Santa Clarita, California.
