I might have given you an impression that I only like songs with ponderous, complicated lyrics. Let’s talk this one then.
“Da Doo Ron Ron” by the Crystals
Category: Golden oldies
Why it rocks:
It’s the best 60s music had to offer: fun, rhythm, a melody that makes you tap your foot and reflections on the modern world. Most of those anyway. It’s such an enjoyable song with a whole lot of instruments you wouldn’t necessarily expect there.
“And when he walked me home / Da doo ron-ron-ron, da doo ron-ron.”
I’m kidding, the lyrics don’t matter.
Intro! And the energy of the whole thing.
Best for: A dance party, baby.
