Friday Foolishness: Stranded (in Iowa)

This one isn’t really a favorite, and there are at least a half-dozen Manfred Mann songs I like better. But when I lived in Iowa, my friends and I used to listen to this one a lot more than it deserved.  It’s got kind of a spooky vibe to it that I like, especially the “Mayday this is Echo Hotel” part.  I have no idea what it’s actually about, and there only seem to be about six lines.  Maybe it really is about being stranded in Iowa.  Unfortunately, there’s no real video, just snowy pictures to go with the song. Here’s Stranded, by Manfred Mann, from 1980.
