fripodding and running away: “runaway” maroon 5


What’s up, Indoobians? I’ve been busier than ever, which seems to be turning into the usual for me now. But maybe we can place some of the blame on the holidays? A lot of people get busier this time of year.

I love this album cover.

In any event, while I remain running around, I had the opportunity to cash in on some online deals for a handful of new music. And when I mean handful, I feel probably about 100 new songs, more or less. So imagine how difficult it would be for me to choose just one song. Actually, those who know about my friPod past know I end up making playlists or calling out a particular artist, but I looked back on the past week to the songs I played the most… and coincidentally, the latest song I’m addicted to.

Maroon 5’s “Runaway” has become one of my favorites. I’ve been a fan some months after Songs About Jane album and each effort, to me, always has a mixed bag of take it or leave it music. Hands All Over is the same for me, but like all of their albums, they have some very big stand out tracks that I think some people will never hear on the radio or see on TV because they aren’t released as singles. I hear word that my other favorite “Stutter” will be released, so we can talk about that later.

But I’m struggling to figure out what it is I love so much about “Runaway” unless it’s just one of those songs, like food, it’s just good because it’s good. I’m not attached to the lyrics in any personal way, but I like them. I definitely enjoy the music. Perhaps it’s the energy? When I was younger, I didn’t like analyzing things that I really liked. And adults used this idea to market a cereal and they would try to figure out what was so special about the cereal that made the kids like it so much, and the kids response: “We just do.” So why do I love this song and have it on repeat this week? I just do.
