"I was born under a wandering star"

Joe writes: what an amazing piece of music. Despite or perhaps because Lee Marvin was not a singer, the vocal is extraordinary. Surely the best ever single by an actor and one of the best ever one hit wonders.

Wand'rin' Star was a UK no. 1 in 1970, keeping Let It Be by The Beatles at no. 2, but weirdly it was never a hit in the US.
