First Hit #1: May 29, 1961
Ricky Nelson has apparently had sex with women on every continent. That’s the enduring message of Travellin’ Man, which is a laidback number celebrating his many conquests. It’s like a United Nations of vaginas. The attitude is pretty infectious and it is a fun song, provided you don’t think too hard about it. After all, it’s just a little pop song about ladies around the world, but having a woman on every continent is, well, kinda bastardly if you think of it. I’d like to think they all meet each other at a World’s Fair one year and hijinks ensue. In fact, that would be a great horrible romantic comedy. Maybe Katherine Heigel could star in it.
