Remember this diddy? Manfred Mann's 'Runner'



South African Manfred Mann scored two No. 1 hits with Do Wah Diddy Diddy in 1964 and Blinded By the Light in 1977. In 1984, Mann and his Earth Band scored their last chart hit with Runner. This forgotten song was an ideal match in 1984 for the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. Mann continues to perform today; that’s a fact, Jack!
