Songs called Runaway - drastically improved chances of them being good

It just occurred to me that every song I knew with the word 'runaway' in the title was very good. So I searched my computer, filled up my ipod with 'Runaway' songs, and came up with this mix:

Bon Jovi - Runaway
Converge - Runaway
Frenzal Rhomb - Runaway
Fugazi - Runaway Return
Iggy Pop - Billy is a Runaway
Jamiroquai - Runaway
Keenan & Anderson ft Tiff Lacey - Runaway (Mat Zo Vocal Remix)
Mario Piu ft More - Runaway (Free Style Mix)
Elvis Presley - Runaway
Slick Rick - Runaway
Steely Dan - Janie Runaway
The Adicts - Runaway
The Temptations - Run Away Child, Running Wild
Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats - Runaway Girls

I had to ditch a few tracks, and I'm sure there are more. Anyone else know any awesome runaway songs that I haven't included?
Linkin Park - Runaway is a guilty pleasure, but I didn't include it
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

I only have 2 songs titled runaway. One from Linkin Park and another from Anberlin. Neither are all that. But I do have one about running back in that's amazing. <3

You lost me at "Lubricate."

I'm raw, like nature. Nature boy. Big jungle leaves are my cum rags.

Sometimes I fuck a bamboo shoot.

Just barreling dogs and barking trains
Another year lost to the blue line

What about the runaways?
They were fairly average
It's over simplified, So what!

I'm not a big Petty fan, but I'm amazed no one mentioned this one

Kanyes runaway is easily the best in here
Yup. Not only the best, but probably the only good one in here. Besides that I only like Soul Asylum's Runaway Train and that's only because of all the nostalgia. One of my favorite songs when I was a kid.

I mean, I have this on my iPod:

but it isn't good. Just a good ol' 9th grade jam.

Missing Del Shannon's Runaway in the OP is poor form TS.

Interesting music trivia about Soul Asylum's Runaway Train was that several "missing" people featured in the video approached the band over the years and told them how that song made their lives worse because they saw the video and went back to the abusive families they originally ran away from.

Weird huh?

You must have no life if all you do is bump your own threads from a bunch of time ago.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
