Dion had twice as many Top-40 hits on his own as he did with Dion & the Belmonts. And he had four times as many top-10 hits. All in all, going solo wasn't a bad move. Dion's hits have since been covered by a wide range of artists, to say the least. "Runaround Sue" was a top-20 hit of Leif Garrett; "Ruby Baby" was featured on Donald Fagen's smash album, "The Nightfly."
