#34 – Soul Asylum – “Runaway Train” – (1992)

Soul Asylum “technically isn’t a one-hit wonder,” as they had another Top 40 hit, but if you want to go ahead and consider them one, I won’t tell anyone. I’m pretty sure this qualifies as “a good song” based on subject matter and lyrics. There were multiple versions of the video featuring missing children and teens. There are all sorts of weird stories concerning them: some of them returned home (sometimes to bad homes) and others were eventually found murdered. I hope that no one lets that take away from an otherwise stellar song.
