    Default Tears Of A Panama Clown - Van Miracles featuring Smokey David Lee Roth



    Published on March, 2021

    In 1984 anything seemed possible for "Diamond Dave" David Lee "Smokey" Roth. His supergroup Van Miracles was riding high on the charts with singles like "Jamie's Crying the Tracks of My Tears" and "I Second That Eruption."

    But their biggest hit would be "Tears of a Panama Clown," which spent an amazing 17 weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 100.

    Sadly, the wild ride wouldn't last, as too much partying, massive egos, infighting and "Smokey" Hagar tore the band apart.

    Still, it's impossible not to smile or tap your feet while listening to their great '80s Motown stadium pop metal soul classics like "Tears of a Panama Clown," "Shop Around with the Devil," and so many others.
    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Thumbs up

    I liked it, I just wish Smokey Robinson's voice wasn't cut out. It would have been cool to hear his voice alongside Dave's.
    Right Now you're reading my post!


    I can't stand rap....people who can't sing do rap....you can sing rebellion as well as talk it....Hitler would have been in a rap band...

    Strangely enough, it works

    Yes, it's a fun one!
    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.
