Del Shannon

Back in 1986, Michael Mann produced a television series called Crime Story. Personally I thought it a better show than his Miami Vice. Crime Story was a precursor to the television show The Sopranos. If you liked the the movie Casino or Wiseguys you'd enjoy this old series. Mann resurrected Del Shannon's song RUNAWAY as the Crime Story theme song. I was at my apartment on Bufford Hwy in Atlanta at the time. I was passing the television as the song kicked in. The revised version of Shannon's song blew me away. Listening to it today - this version still pack a punch.
