When Did Your Heart Go Missing? is a great one hit wonder. It’s a great riff and the lyrics are sung with a great punchable confidence. There’s some great nonsense talking in the outro:
I don’t know where your heart went
It was here just the other day
Now it’s gone
I’m gonna call the police
Call the investigator, the heart investigator
But sometimes the reason I love a song is the trivia around it. This is one of my best bits of trivia and it’s a spider web of useless information. The lead singer of Rooney is Robert Coppola Schwartzman. His uncle is Francis Ford Coppola so with that you get all the linked madness there. Nicholas Cage, Sofia Coppola and Roman Coppola are his cousins. And his brother is Jason Schwartzman, the actor, but, also very interestingly (if you enjoy this kind of nonsense), the former drummer in Phantom Planet, another band with a classic one hit wonder from around the same time, California.
