Run Little Linda

Album: released as a single (1963)

Songfacts®:

  • In a November 1979 interview with Rip Lay published in Goldmine, Ral Donner was asked to name his own favourite recordings. He named six of them, suffixing the list with the one he disliked the most, "Run Little Linda," of which he said, "What A Loser!"

    Many will disagree. Written by Mike Joseph, it was released on the Reprise label in 1963 backed by "Beyond The Heartbreak (But Still In Love)." >>
