    Who are these twats who come on here slagging this record off - what is the point? - if you don't like it don't bother commenting there's a million records on here I don't like but why would I or anyone sensible bother commenting on them. Bloody hell some people just never stop being really annoying 16 year olds however old they get do they?

      Plenty of chat about the cheesy a-side but nothing about Runaways?

      A stunning, thought provoking (and frankly terrifying) track.

      I'm not even a fan of rap music, but Runaways is unmissable. Forget Raving I'm Raving and check it out right now.

        terrible crap that only became popular because of a pulled sample.
        commercialized trash.

            The best version of this tune is the 1992 Remix, without any trace of that "Walking in Memphis" Elvis Presley sh*t. Singer voice sounds very soulful...after listening to it, try to listen to the Scooter'll get sick and puke, man!

              I remember when this song hit the clubs it was massive!!! I also remember when it got pulled and how hard it was to get a copy, I ended up getting it on a white label for about 15-20 quid but i still think it was worth it and would have paid more! When SUAD bought out a legal remix of the song it was so disapointing compared to the original i just think they should have left it!

                I remember Colin Dale dropping this in his set at the 'Breakfast Club' in London, just outside the 'Milk Bar'. I was on after him so I was on the balcony watching below as he built up the hardest set I think i'd heard back then, just kept piling it on and on until, this dropped, the vocal break 'I'm walking with my feet 10 feet off the ground' the lazers bouncing off the strobes onto a mad frenetic seething mass of a dancefloor, they all musta gulped in the air and sighed it back out again with the rush at exactly the same time, pure genius moment. When he finished i went upto to him so as to get on the decks, and he was smiling from ear to ear, he then grabbed my hand and shook it with gusto. Total honour that was.

                  Both the previous two commenters do not recall the whole story. The very reason the record only went in at number 2 is because it was already withdrawn! Marc Cohn and the MCPS had got wind of the record and forced SUAD to stop distributing further copies of the record, sales of which were going mad due to the buzz that had built up. I think they had to agree to give all profits to chrity as well.

                  It was alleged that the mid-week chart total returns showed it at number one (even though such a leak should _never_ have happened, this was strictly industry confidential information.)

                  The SUAD boys agreed not to press or distribute any further copies beyond the initial run, which were not sufficient to take it to number 1 in the chart.

                  Of course the further buzz caused by the ban ensured that practically all remaining copies sold out even in places where they wouldn't normally - The 12" was gone everywhere and I was reduced to buying a 7" in Woolies and after that I think they only had cassettes left!

                  After that the MCPS looked at SUAD's back catalog and pursued them for every sample in all their tunes (which was a lot) which scuppered SUAD for years - they were effectively made scapegoats for the whole sampling phenomenon in the rave scene.

                    SubSystem is mistaken - the single went in at number 2 (so near, yet so far!), and, since it was a very limited edition which sold out quickly, was gone from the Top 75 two weeks later. The record at number one that week was - brace yourself, this will be a shock - KWS's cover (of Double You?'s cover) of "Please Don't Go".

                      I remember that this record went straight in the UK Top 40 at Number 1. It got banned instantly. Dont know why, it didnt really do Mark Cohen any injustice. After all He's let loads of other people cover this song.

                      The bass line does it for me on this one!
