"You Keep Runnin' Away" by 38 Special

Song#:  1154
Date:  08/21/1982
Debut:  69
Peak:  38
Weeks:  11
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  The band scored their first Top 10 album (#10) thanks to their first Top 10 single, "Caught Up in You" (#10). This second single got off to a good start but then lost momentum and was only able to reach the Top 40. However, it was enough to help the band get their second platinum album in a row.

ReduxReview:  This band knew how to toss together solid Southern rock with pop leanings. This song doesn't have the standout chorus of "Caught Up in You," but it's a good track that found a home on rock stations.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Although they only managed one pop Top 10 from the album, on the Mainstream Rock chart they achieved three. "Caught Up in You" reached #1 followed by this song which peaked at #7, while the track "Chain Lightnin'" hit #9.
