referencing Runaway, 7", Single, 45-HLX 9317
"Runaway" is listed in the Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and overall deserves to be so. "Runaway" is a great song with great lyrics with an upbeat beat. As well as "Runaway" deserves to be on the list, I was much more impressed with the B-side to the single; "Jody".

"Jody" is an extremely emotional song with powerful lyrics about his daughter Jody, whom he named the song after. Jody as an adult frequented clubs and then died later in her life. The song expresses the emotions Del had if she would ever come back.

"Runaway" was good, but "Jody" was better.
