I finally figured out what is so great about Dion. 'Runaround Sue' is aggressive, rocking doo wop....doo wop finally devoid of 'cuteness'. There is a sexiness to Dion's voice that drives the music.

'The Wanderer' is even better. It is the classic Song of the Cocksman. In these dreary politically correct days, songs like this are not written...or the message is delivered so over the top, with references to 'hos' and 'bitches', that one is not entertained in the least.

'The Wanderer', 'Runaround Sue' and 'Ruby Baby' are all to my ear vocal perfection on the part of Dion. 'The Wanderer' must have sounded fairly dangerous during the early sixties, what with Elvis pretty much castrated in the wake of real fear about 'rock and roll music'.
