When Dion Just Nailed It

An ethereally dreamy intro. A sudden drop into the groove. Primitive and perfect vocal harmonies. Hand-claps! That undying, beautiful doo-wop chord progression. Great stops. A killer melody. Unexpected percussion accents. A cutting voice. A soaring chorus. Everything good about pop music   – all the tricks, all the magic, the whole complete alchemical formula – is perfectly captured in “Runaround Sue.”
