Here he is, 'the big sleazy'; Del Shannon at his very best.

'Runaway' ticks along with Shannon's signature cheese ball grin for the first minute or so. There's not too much happening. And then suddenly, and unexpectedly, Del steps out into the light and marks his moment in history with a falsetto grab that would go on to have undeniable affects on the likes of The Beach Boys and the early Beatles.
