Del Shannon Songs - Tutorials

The song Runaway was co-written by Del Shannon and his keyboardist Max Crook back in 1961 and became a huge #1 hit. The song was originnaly called Little Runaway, and after their first studio recording, their manager persuaded Del and Max to re-write the song. They idea was to show off the keyboard. The original recording was also sped up a bit upon its release. A few months later in Apr 1961, Del appeared on American Bandstand with Dick Clark and the song took off. At one point 80,000 sales per day were tracked at the high point of the songs release.
