Song of the Day: Run

Today’s song is Run by Awolnation.

Alt rock.
Yeah, most know this track because it became a meme.
Whatever. This song is interesting.

It takes a while to realize that the song is building up to that central point.
As it becomes clearer, the entire tone shifts and repeat listening becomes fascinating.

Run.

That drop is nuts. As a general point, everything around it is amplified.

I enjoy the second half of this song more than the first. It’s stronger, having the bridge/chorus to pull from.
Might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but different enough to spotlight.
