In 1994 the German pop band Real McCoy released an album called Another Night. It’s first single had the same title, and was the song that made them huge in the U.S. But their follow up hit “Run Away” was just as big, and way cooler in my book.
I never really paid too much attention to the lyrics, but I do remember the “big brother is watching you” line. As it turns out, the whole song in based on George Orwell’s 1984. “Run Away” peaked at #3 on the Billboard Top 40 in 1995; oddly enough so did Janet Jackson’s “Runaway.”
