The Alpha Male Anthem

There have been plenty of cad anthems in the rock and country music pantheons celebrating raw masculine privilege, but the song “I’m a Wanderer”, sung by Guinea-American Dion and released in 1961, is in my factual opinion the greatest alpha male anthem in American history.

Read the lyrics (along with my editorial commentary) and you’ll agree with my judgment of this song’s ZFG ALPHA GLORIFICATION:

Oh, well, I’m the type of guy who will never settle down
Where pretty girls are, well, you know that I’m around
I kiss ’em and I love ’em ’cause to me they’re all the same
I hug ’em and I squeeze ’em they don’t even know my name

Man of Mystery Game plus an attitude of Outcome Independence, aka Zero Fucks Given. The Wanderer knows that the pussy pedestal is a penis prison, and he should fight the urge to idealize women and to succumb to oneitis by treating women as if they were interchangeable.

They call me a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Chicks love a hard-to-get man.

Oh, well, there’s Flo on my left and there’s Mary on my right
And Janie is the girl, well, that I’ll be with tonight
And when she asks me, which one I love the best?
I tear open my shirt and I show “Rosie” on my chest

Poon Commandment VII: Keep two in the kitty. Season with a bit of Dread Game and jealousy plotlines.

‘Cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

What’s the opposite of a beta male puppy dog begging for validation? An alpha male lion roaming the veldt for prey!

Oh, well, I roam from town to town
I go through life without a care
And I’m as happy as a clown
I with my two fists of iron and I’m going nowhere

I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around
I’m never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself fallin’ for some girl
Yeah, I hop right into that car of mine, I drive around the world

Love is The Wanderer’s Achilles’ heel. But instead of allowing himself to swoon straight into tingle-killing domestication, he makes distaff hearts flutter wildly by refusing the nuptial leash.

Yeah I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around

Oh yeah, I’m the type of guy that likes to roam around
I’m never in one place, I roam from town to town
And when I find myself a-fallin’ for some girl
I hop right into that car of mine and drive around the world

Disappearing acts are cunt-nip.

Yeah, ’cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around, around, around, around

‘Cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer
I roam around, around, around

‘Cause I’m a wanderer
Yeah, a wanderer

I doubt a song with this unapologetically caddish message could be released today. Not so much because the arts and entertainment complex is suffused with bitterbitches and gays, but because there aren’t any men left with the requisite high T and heavy balls who’d want to proudly celebrate the male romantic prerogative. We’re in a male feminist world now, and our women are the worse for it.

The theme of this song and its time — 1961 America, right in the heart of the Great Compression when relations between the sexes were at its precious polarity zenith and wage-earning men could still acquire a reasonably pretty and slender wife (and nonWhite Diversity™ had not yet gutted the soul of the nation) — is puzzling when examined in its cultural context. Was it a rebellious sneer against the implicit monogamous restrictions placed on men, or was it a reflection of a sexual market that was perhaps wilder than we assume, or (my personal theory) reflective of the attitude of people at the time who understood the sexes were innately different and that men who make themselves a challenge to women are sexier than men who appease women?

PS On another note, check that handsome 1961 crowd in the video. Not a fatty, bluehair, or soyboy in the mix. America was truly a better country then, and no amount of blathering about BUT MUH IPHAG is gonna change the reality that as a culture, we Americans have devolved into quasi-mutants. Sad!

        Where are you getting “Dion was never that sort of badass?” He ran with the Fordham Baldies gang. He might not have been lanky, but he wasn’t short (but for that matter, Ronnie Van Zant was very short but still beat the hell out of everyone). Anyway, my dad was a leather-jacketed hood who ran with tough guys and even they were afraid of Dion — not his crowd but him personally.

        “St. Crispin’s Day Speech”

        By: William Shakespeare

        WESTMORELAND. O that we now had here
        But one ten thousand of those men in England
        That do no work to-day!

        KING. What’s he that wishes so?
        My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
        If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
        To do our country loss; and if to live,
        The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
        God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
        By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
        Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
        It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
        Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
        But if it be a sin to covet honour,
        I am the most offending soul alive.
        No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
        God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
        As one man more methinks would share from me
        For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
        Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
        That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
        Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
        And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
        We would not die in that man’s company
        That fears his fellowship to die with us.
        This day is call’d the feast of Crispian.
        He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
        Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,
        And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
        He that shall live this day, and see old age,
        Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
        And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian.’
        Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
        And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.’
        Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
        But he’ll remember, with advantages,
        What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
        Familiar in his mouth as household words-
        Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
        Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
        Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
        This story shall the good man teach his son;
        And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
        From this day to the ending of the world,
        But we in it shall be remembered-
        We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
        For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
        Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
        This day shall gentle his condition;
        And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
        Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
        And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
        That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

      I’m a hot-headed Sicilian and used to despise being called WOP.

      Now I long for the days of a lily-white country where that was an insult. Given the choice between that and today’s society of odd-smelling brown women wrapped in sheets, I’ll take WOP every time. Intolerance was a good thing in retrospect.

      And beyond that, the stereotypes were correct. We were a bunch of greasy gangsters and had to get with the Protestant work ethic. Still, say what you want, our women were a lot better looking that the immigrants you find today and our men at least brought style to the culture. Plus our food is WAY better than the hallal crap or whatever it is.

    • Speaking as someone who is a Italian-Slavic-Germanic hybrid, the term guinea is extremely offensive to older Italians. If you said this years ago to an Italian there is a high probability you might get smacked in the face especially if you were non-Italian. Italians amongst themselves dont use it as they know better. It was invented by others to denigrate Italian people.

      People need to remember something – it wasnt the Italians, Poles and others that sold the US and Western countries down the river. It was the WASPs who sold the the US and European countries out to the left.

      I know there is this constant veneration of the WASPs and constant put downs of southern and eastern Europeans but people need to remember that all European people are intertwined. Out enemies are not each other but rather the left.

        Arguably, when one considers the life off the stage as well.

        Dean Martin was actually a more melodic singer and just as ZFG, and probably considered more handsome.

        Tom Jones (the Welshman, not our no-bones) has to be in the running, considering the mountain of hotel keys and panties they had to sweep off the stage after his performances.

        And on the other side of the fence, there’s the other rat packer, Sammy Davis, Jr.,

  17. Brothers and sisters:
    Sin must not reign over your mortal bodies
    so that you obey their desires.
    And do not present the parts of your bodies to sin
    as weapons for wickedness,
    but present yourselves to God as raised from the dead to life
    and the parts of your bodies to God
    as weapons for righteousness.
    For sin is not to have any power over you,
    since you are not under the law but under grace.

    What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law
    but under grace?
    Of course not!
    Do you not know that if you present yourselves
    to someone as obedient slaves,
    you are slaves of the one you obey,
    either of sin, which leads to death,
    or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?
    But thanks be to God that, although you were once slaves of sin,
    you have become obedient from the heart
    to the pattern of teaching to which you were entrusted.
    Freed from sin, you have become slaves of righteousness.

    • There have been several variations of “I’m A Man” (actually the original was John Lee Hooker’s “Manish Boy”, if memory serves).

      Bo Diddley did a good version, the Yardbirds put there own spin on it, and I’m sure just about every blues singer and wanna be covered it at one time or another.

      Spencer Davis Group also did a song called “I’m A Man”, which might have been the biggest hit for them, but it’s a different song altogether.

      • “…Black folks like to say the white man stole their music…”

        well black folks “stole” almost everything else

        it is white men who invented the the piano, the bass, the saxophone, the guitar, the electric guitar, the amplifier, the microphone, the recording equipment…and this is the short list

        none of those things existed in Africa, had we left blacks there they would still be banging on tree trunks, they would have never come up with blues, jazz etc they never invented any of those instruments on which they played jazz, blues and today’s rap/hip-hop

        when we found them they had not yet invented the wheel, not discovered mathematics, or calendars…they were a thousand years or a hundred thousand years from developing the technology required to do precision work on wood or metal or to even make metal objects as is needed to make a saxophone a trumpet or a piano or to make the strings on a guitar

        self hating white liberals love love LOVE to say blacks invented jazz blues and a few other genres, but without our thousands of inventions blacks would still be banging on tree trunks.

      The Philanderer

      Oh, well I’m the type of guy who would never settle down
      Where pretty girls are, well you know that I’m around
      I kiss ’em and I love ’em ’cause to mne they’re all the same
      I get so gosh darned hammered, I don’t even know their names
      ‘Cause I’m a philanderer, yes a philanderer
      I sleep around, around, around, around, around

      All my views are on the left, got a bimbo on the right
      Only God knows where I’ll be passing out tonight
      And if you want to ask me which girl I love the best
      I’ll tear open my shirt, got mother Rosie on my chest
      ‘Cause I’m a philanderer, yes a philanderer
      I sleep around, around, around, around, around

      Oh yeah, I’m the type of guy, he likes to roam around
      I’m never in on place, I wake from town to town
      But when I find myself falling for some girl
      I walk right to that car of mine and I take her for a whirl
      The car skids round and round and round and round and round

    In the 1990s, My father always kept the car radio dial tuned to some “oldies” AM station and I distinctly remember hearing this song as a kid and thinking, “wow, what a guy!” (It also exposed me to hits like “Runaway” by Del Shannon and “96 tears” by Question Mark and the Mysterians. Those were some times, the 60s.

    I’ve heard stories about the 60s and 70s being casual sex paradises, but I wonder, is it really true? Was it really easy to get laid back then? Particularly in contrast to today’s “hookup culture”.

    • Like most tales of bygone eras, the stories expanded with age.

      That said, I think my puzzlement about all this PUA fuss to get laid is well-documented, here at the chateau, and anyone with a modicum of “rap” (we used to call it, the ability to talk with girls) had no trouble scoring.

      Of course, almost everybody played an instrument and was in a band, or was doing the greaser motorcycle neo-James Dean/Marlon Brando shtick, so there’s that.

      All in all, it seemed like there wasn’t so many games that needed to be played, and most guys weren’t into just banging for the sake of banging, we still had a foundation in the old ways of eventually wanting to get m-a-r-r-i-e-d and have children.

      And when we went to the movies, we enjoyed 007, but were grounded enough to know it was “just a movie”.

  44. Tip: Lyricist got at least one thing wrong – it’s alpha for Flo, Mary and Janie to know your name, and for you NOT to know theirs.

    Pretending not to know works just as well, and practiced as a habit, soon becomes genuine confusion rather than pretense.

    As soon as I learn the name of a target, I substitute something similar, like Marian or Jeanie for Mary or Janie, and remember that instead.
