Song of the day: Dion- The Wanderer
In 1961, Ernie Maresca wrote the song The Wanderer. The song is about a man who is travelling and thinking about his (many) loves. Ernie had written with Dion for his earlier number 1 hit, Runaround Sue, but actually thought of giving this song to Nino and the Ebbtides. They wanted another song, so Ernie gave it to Dion as a b-side of The Majestic. The DJ’s flipped the single and played this more, making it a number 2 hit in the US, number 10 in the UK and number 1 in Australia. Enjoy
