Big Star, “Run and Run”
So I have an increasingly long list of songs I’d like to talk about, but this instantaneously LEAPED to the top of the list from the opening moments of the mv, and I am incredibly excited to talk about it!
Let me just start by saying this is not a song meant to satisfy any desire for deep, philosophical broodings. This is just a good fucking time all around: the mv is crazy and the lyrics are simply about having a crazy night. The video does get a little artistic at 2:34 with the colored dirt thrown into the choreography, but this is counterbalanced by absolutely everything else in the video (I am particularly amused by 1:50 when Baram attempts to drill his way through the wall… with his safety goggles hanging around his neck… and gets absolutely nowhere). The only thing I was disappointed in was that I DID NOT WANT THE VIDEO TO END, a sentiment that was echoed by another friend of mine. I immediately replayed the video and have watched it numerous times on other occasions.
I feel like part of the appeal is that this whole presentation seems like some sort of perfect combination of B1A4, Block B, and Teen Top. The mv and their style is very reminiscent of B1A4, but their sound is like Teen Top, although Boram’s rap and their whole confidence oozes Block B. This recipe is, to me, a resounding success.
