Gnarls Barkley “Run”

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Before everyone starts flipping out and getting violent & bitter because the new Gnarls Barkley single is being played on every station, across every possible medium I thought that it would be nice to share it here, on the internet, as god intended. The only starting point that I’ve read in regards to what the song sounds like seems to be aimed at the duo’s infectious “Crazy,” and how “Run” sounds nothing like it…but that’s a bit unfair…don’t you think? Such teasing is akin to asking Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch to put out another “Good Vibrations,” like asking Chumbawumba to put out another “Tubthumping,” like asking Clay Aikin to put out another…well, I’m sure he wrote something good too. The big difference between Gnarls Barkley and the aforementioned schlubs is that I honestly love Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo, I love “Run” and really love the idea of hearing an entire album of new material!
