Runaround Sue

Tonight I confirmed my crush on Patton Oswalt, watching Big Fan. And I rekindled an old flame–Dion. When I was a kid, my friend Anne made up the Runaround Sue game, which involved the dining room table, a rubber ball, a Fisher Price phone and a lot of running around. Sung, of course, to Dion’s “Runaround Sue.” As a kid, nothing makes you feel more special than a song with your name in it. There are times, like tonight, where I would love nothing more than to call up Anne and see if she wants to take a spin around the table.

Dion looks a bit smarmy in these videos, and he obviously went through some pretty heavy hippie life changes at some point. This is the song from Big Fan, and it might as well have come off the last Black Keys album…
