Black Leather Jacket! They wrote that too!!. A great period song.
I always think of that when I pull out on Highway 101 on my bike. I have an eagle which I am having sewn to the back of my jacket before I leave Sonoma County (CA) for Wyoming (maybe Iowa) and Colorado on a motorcycle trip next week.
My favorite recording of that song though is by Edith Piaf. It is called "Le Fou", "The fool was the terror of the country all around."
