It’s DAW-nee

Sure, his yellow suit with the flood pants is way too reminiscent of Elvis Costello, but his sound is uniquely Donny Iris. Or DAW-nee, as he’s known in western PA, where he’s considered a local hero. Note the incredibly tight afro, thick-rimmed glasses, and dorky bow tie. Not to mention the shoulder-padded, long-skirted 80s queen hanging on his arm. The video is from the 1980, but the song is still one of my favorites.
