At its roots, it's more than meets the eye. But you know, "The Wanderer" is really a sad song.
A lot of guys don't understand that. Bruce Springsteen was the only guy who accurately expressed what that song was about. It's "I roam from town to town and go through life without a care, I'm as happy as a clown with my two fists of iron, but I'm going nowhere. It sounds like a lot of fun but it's about going nowhere.
However, on Maresca's original demo of the song, the lyrics were "with my two fists of iron and my bottle of beer" , and the change to "with my two fists of iron but I'm going nowhere" in fact seems to have been at the record company's insistence. The song has been categorized as rock and roll , rhythm and blues and pop. Status Quo covered the song twice, once as a complete version, and once again as part of their Anniversary Waltz, Pt. Status Quo's version was a number seven hit in the UK and a number three hit in Ireland in ; it was later included on the reissue of Back to Back.
Mel Gibson sings a version in the animated movie Chicken Run. The "Big Bad Wolf" in the Portuguese lyrics is somewhat like the wanderer, riding in his car and getting all the girls. The French version "Le Vagabond" which tells the same story as the original was a hit in French-speaking countries by Richard Anthony. Featured prominently in the film The Wanderers.
