When I heard the preview of Run For Your Life for the first time, I liked it a lot, but wasn’t sure everyone else would. I listened a couple more times and began to love it, but with such a short taster, it’s impossible to know whether the rest of the song will live up to its promise. Finally today we got to hear the full song and see the entire video.
As things go, I was sitting in the car when Chris Moyles gave it its premiere play and sitting with me was a very chatty seven year old whose idea of keeping quiet is to only talk about one subject at a time, so it wasn’t easy to form an opinion. Later I sat down and watched the video. Good storyline, I thought and nice, nice song. Very Matt, as I hinted in a previous blog. I watched it again later and got goosebumps. The third time, along with the goosebumps, tears pricked the back of my eyes (not unusual according to some fans, but not common for me). This song is a grower, but grows very very quickly. It’s also a classic. Rather pleased I have it on preorder.
Roll on the album release.
