RUNAWAY ?... I WON'T !!!

Postby Nathalie Provenzano on Sat Sep 23, 2006 11:04 am

Hi from Montpellier !!!!

Well, I really love it, even if this sample is to short for me (I'm in love with you music...).
Good variations (i hope my english is good :? ), good rythmics...
Something your hear once and you'll never forget, soft but also strong.
Simple but "efficace" (maybe "efficient" or "efficious").
Thank you.
Kisses !!!!

Nathalie from Montpellier :D

mm i love it! heard it over local radio in singapore and got sooooo excited. haha i thought they'd take FOREVER to get it. when i first heard it i thought i was listening to a remix of don't give hate a chance or sth haha. which is a little disturbing cause i don't really like how they couldn't come up with something new.

but however! upon listening on i realised this is wayyy fresher! i love the key changes! and the violins! that does it for me (: it's reminds me of canned heat, where do we go from here, yeah the synkronized era. nice nice nice(:

i do wish jay'd pay more tribute to his acid jazz roots though. not that i don't like what he's doing now, but it'd be even more impressive to see him come up with new classics. the songs that never run dry and are constantly being reinvented during live performances. now that's jamiroquai spirit alive and kicking!

I can relate to it,id love to run away myself.
But i dont like it,it does'nt do a thing for me.it does'nt want to make me dance,neither sing.They played here on the radio and most people rang up and they did'nt like it either.
Hopefully i have to listen to it abit more,because i love JMQ and i hate it when i dont like one of their new songs. :( Have'nt seen the video clip,hopefully when seeing it, II'I like it more.

A HUGE hi Julie - great to hear from you my friend :) :) :) I know how you must feel, you look forward to hearing the new song and you don't like it - sometimes this has happened to me where it takes me a while to like a song, sometimes I don't end up liking it, other times it takes me ages to like a song - hope you're able to see the video soon :)

Anyway, as I've said before - I LOVE IT!!!!!!

Can you dig it
Something in the air tonight
Got a one way ticket
Baby, don't you wanna ride
Got to make it
Make it to the other side
I've got demons
Snapping at my heels tonight

CHORUS
I just want to runaway
Turn me loose
Got people around running me down I cant stay
WOO
I just want to get away, I just want to get away now.
Get them off my back today

Can u feel it
Im stuck inside in a hurricane
Chasing rainbows
Cant u see im going insane
I wanna be a free man
But im spinning on this crazy wheel
Im jumping for the high bar
Cant u dig it
No longer know what I feel
Cant u see

CHORUS
I just want to runaway
Turn me loose
Got people around running me down I cant stay
I just want to get away, I just want to get away now.
Get them off my back today

I just wanna runaway
Turn me loose, turn me loose
Turn me loose, turn me loose

(Interlude)

Got to make it, got to make it
Got to break it, got to make it

CHORUS
I just want to runaway
Just want to runaway
Got people around running me down I cant stay
Can't stay here long now
I just want to get away
I just got to get away
Get them off my back today
WOO

I just want to runaway
La la la la la la
Just want to get away
La la la la la la
Turn me loose, runaway runaway
Got people around running me down I can't stay
Runaway, runaway

I just want to runaway
La la la la la la
Just got to get away
La la la la la la
Turn me loose, runaway
Get them off my back today

I'm sure lots of people would want to be grinding Jay down LOL, but it's definitely 'running me down' :)

I think I'll have to agree with Jamiroquanna on this...it IS " ..grinding me down.." (or at least something that starts with a g)....for some reason I think it's easier to hear that when you listen to the Grant Nelson remix :? :)

I guess Im different then those of you men looking for a special sound. I love Jay Kays voice, no matter what he sings. He could sing Three Blind Mice and I would love it- lol-Being female I guess Im looking for different things. I look for tone, lyrics, mood, things like that. He is # 1 with me and so is Runaway. :D :D :D :D

i'll have to vote when i can get the audio...am at the library where i can see the video, but can't hear the audio....which is totally irritating, but funny to watch anyway.

I was watching this thinking...I WAS THERE, with Little H and Jan! :) But I didn't see a man in a moon suit...interesting lyrics...i feel the same way though. I'd love to get away some where far from here! Looks like Juliequai does too.

From reading all of your comments, I Can't WAIT to hear the audio!!!

It is definitely a great song and the more you listen the more it grows on you. :)
However i was hoping to hear one of the retro-style classics like the space cowboy or scam, something with an urban acid jazz feel but sadly its not to be. :cry:

On terms of the video, I always feel he could be more creative on the visual concepts he chooses. He has had made some amazing vids in the past which were worth a hit of the rewind button now it seems to be just too plain and simple, and its always with him just singing into the camera kind of boringly.:( But dont get me wrong people I love jamiroquai loads. Sorry. Dont hit me either.:cry:
