Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Run Away" by Real McCoy

In 1994 the German pop band Real McCoy released an album called Another Night.  It's first single had the same title, and was the song that made them huge in the U.S.  But their follow up hit "Run Away" was just as big, and way cooler in my book.

I never really paid too much attention to the lyrics, but I do remember the "big brother is watching you" line.  As it turns out, the whole song in based on George Orwell's 1984.   "Run Away" peaked at #3 on the Billboard Top 40 in 1995; oddly enough so did Janet Jackson's "Runaway."


  1. I remember this song! I actually just heard their song "Another Night" a few weeks ago at the gym, and being a huge fan of 90s music, downloaded it for my workout playlist.

  2. yup, 90's music is totally awesome. Thanks for the comment DH!
