Kevin Remuck Performs "Restless, Restless"

I just noticed that the winner of the Howard Stern Show's "Restless, Restless" contest has posted a video of his terrific performance of the song that Tom Gesimondo and I wrote many years ago. You can read the entire, strange tale of how this song came to be at this previous post.


In a nutshell, Tom and I wrote what is arguably THE worst song of all time. It's so bad that when Howard Stern first heard it, he decided to have a contest on his KROCK radio show that would award $5000 to the band that could turn our original song into something good. The show received over 1000 submissions including great ones from Robert Goulet and William Shatner. But it was Kevin Remuck's version that was the hands down winner. It's worth a listen and you can hear some other versions at the player below!

The Best Of "Restless, Restless" Jukebox

Restless, Restless

[Gesimondo & Favale]


You wore your purple dress

I put on my dancing shoes

A night like all the rest

I didn’t have a clue

I picked you up at ten

And to a fault you were quiet

I didn’t know it then

That I was off your diet


You said you needed time to think for yourself

While all the time you were thinking ‘bout somebody else

Now I can tell by the look that’s on your face

That someone else has taken my place

What’s his name?

What’s his name?

What’s his name?


Chorus

Restless

[Restless, Restless]

It happens all the time

I love you

I love you

I like you

I’ve changed my mind

Restless

[Restless, Restless]

She starts to feel that way

You used to leave her Breathless

Now you leave her with nothing to say


You never said it

Not even to this day

You made sure I read it

The author doesn’t sign her name

You tell all your friends

How I left you in haste

You don’t tell them

How you left me with this after taste


Chorus

Restless

[Restless, Restless]

It happens all the time

I love you

I love you

I like you

She's changed her mind


Restless

[Restless, Restless]

She starts to feel that way

You used to leave her breathless

Now you leave her with nothing to say
