RUNAWAY kick in the B+LLS for Sony

Postby accrama on Fri Oct 06, 2006 2:35 pm

Is it just me or are the letters for RUNAWAY a kick right in the balls for SONY?

Jamiroquai recently said that he was fed up with the contract with Sony and that the "greatest hits" disc was done only to furfill the 8 recording contract.

As the song says: "I just want to runaway; turn me loose; got people around me running me down"..."get them off my back today".

Really gets you thinking how much hatred is on Jamiroquai's head towards the label.

Yep, you're spot on - it's a direct dig at Sony (well in my opinion anyway) :) :) :)

We don't really know, but the boys definitely want to keep doing music though, so we won't know until they want to release some new stuff after the GH :)

Runaway single digital download | 09.10.2006

By now you should be seeing and hearing Runaway, Jamiroquai's new single, fairly often on UK television and radio stations and are hopefully looking forward to buying the single and its funky remixes when it is released at the end of this month.

Well, whilst you wait for the full release, check out digital retailers such as iTunes [http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=198719254&s=143444] and HMV Digital to download the single and get your fix of Runaway right now!

This song is awesome. Due to the fact I live in North America I didn't know it existed until I hit this site.

Well I'm actually really frustrated as you know I live in Australia and I went to 2 places today to get Runaway as it was meant to be released last Sat (28 Oct) and none of them knew about Runaway - one guy from a Music Store actually called up Sony BMG Australia to double check and the Sony guy didn't know anything about it, saying that the GH is coming out this Sat (4 Nov) but didn't know about Runaway (they said maybe I 'heard' it on the radio and presumed it was going to be a single) - they said maybe they might release a single but not in the next fortnight.

Anyway I'm just darn frustrated as I want to support the band but it's pretty hard when I can't buy the single anywhere and Sony BMG didn't even know about Runaway coming out as a single - ggggrrrrrr!!!!!!

Have any other Aussies had any trouble like me????

Comparing the two of them : in the video there is a calm smile .
Made me so cheerful .
Having a look on the text of radio and listening to the calm music
makes me tremble . So bitter , my god .

I just read at Funkin.com that Runaway came in at NO. 18 - pretty good, althought I hoped it would have come in higher :) :) :)

yeah fully - it feel like a culmination but not only towards the label - i think the passage of a few different things has put a funk on Jay's funk - and this is basically the greatest tragedy of our times, as i see it when i consider that music has been one of our only salvations - but not only do i see it - i feel it too. things have changed - but i hope for him and everyone, as i do myself - that we find people around us that help us see and feel again the actual point to it all - from the beginning and back to the... more timely end 8)
