All the Way to China (Hole in my heart)
As made famous by Cyndi Lauper

Hole in my heart (all the way to China)

The fabulous song which is 'Hole in my Heart (all The Way to China)' began life in the bathtub of Mr. Orange, essentially, thinking of childhood imagery of how, if one began digging a hole in the U.S., hypothetically, one would come out on the other side in China.

Richard & Cyndi spent time writing the track 'Paper Heart' whilst staying at the Mayflower hotel accross from John Lennon's "Strawberry Fields" on CentralPark West.

17-08-2006: Review on torpedopo.com
Having been at least somewhere on the scene, for no less than thirty years or so, it’s strange for a Beatlemaniacal fan (which is a category I count myself in) not to have heard about Mr.Orange. Anyway, I guess it’s better whenever than never...[More]

Review

A big, juicy Beatleoid, Orange wears his pulp on his sleeve, serving up slices of sweet pop bliss, seemingly effortlessly, but we all know that if it were that easy, we'd all be named Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr. But Orange is more than a Beatles guy; he's a fan and practitioner of catchy music, and this he doles out handily and with great pleasure.

Orange can sound like a pumped-full-of-sugar-and-salt McCartney grinding out "Monkberry Moon Delight" as if his life depended on it, as he does on the opener, "Mental Dentist," and the old time rock 'n' roll love song "Absolutely Positively," on which he manages to ape Macca's vocal technique on the first line of the verses from Press to Play's "Angry." Orange can also sound tender on the Lennonesque "Fall Off the World (Mimi's Song)," which sports a delectable chorus that really sings. - Alan Haber (2005)
