Friday Foolishness: Ah Leah

A song that’s been one of my favorites since I first heard it is Ah Leah, by Donnie Iris.  Fortunately, I didn’t get to see music videos back in the 1980s, so I didn’t know the guy singing was a dead ringer for Eugene Levy selling Clark Griswold the Family Truckster.  (And he’s even shirtless for a couple terrifying seconds.  I can’t imagine why he didn’t have a huge career after that.)   I just knew the song was loaded with infectious energy — it screams, as we might have said back then.  It’s the perfect driving song, except it’s not possible to stay under the speed limit while it’s cranked up.
