Today is the Indiana primary...

...and I can't get this old song out of my head.

"Indiana Wants Me" was written, composed, and originally recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter R. Dean Taylor in 1970, when I was in sixth or seventh grade.

According to Wikipedia, Taylor wrote and composed the song after watching the movie Bonnie and Clyde:

The police siren sounds at the start of the record were removed from some copies supplied to radio stations after complaints that drivers hearing the song on the radio had mistakenly pulled over, thinking that the sounds were real.
