"She's a Runner" by Billy Squier

Song#:  1334
Date:  02/05/1983
Debut:  88
Peak:  75
Weeks:  6
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  Squier's "Emotions in Motion" LP became his second multi-platinum seller thanks in part to the #1 rock track "Everybody Wants You" (#32 pop). By the time this third single came out, the album was beginning to wind down. There wasn't much interest in the song and it peaked in the lower quarter of the pop chart while only reaching #44 at Mainstream Rock.

ReduxReview:  I can almost hear this as an early John Cougar song. The summery rock feel of the tune is pretty darn good, but it probably wasn't the best candidate for the pop chart. I think it could have done a little better, but with the album's popularity wanting, the song just got overlooked. It is definitely one of the better songs from the album.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Although this was the final single from the album, during its run there were two other album tracks that hit the Mainstream Rock chart. "Learn How to Live" did well hitting #15 while "Keep Me Satisfied" made a brief appearance at #46.
