The Real McCoy – “Run Away” – (1995)

Sigh. 90’s Eurodance, how I miss you. This style of music is proof that the 90s were a happier time than now (even if the lyrics here are “Run away if you want to survive”). In a day when house music is pretty much the norm on mainstream radio, I can’t imagine how this ever became so popular in the mid-90s. I mean, it reached #3 on the Hot 100. For that brief period between summer of 1994 and the end of 1996, Eurodance became one of the 90s brief flashes of a very specific genre that would burn out really quick (I’m looking at you, Swing Revival).
