First Impressions: Jully Black 'Running' For Love and Hope

Friday, November 13, 2009

Usually I'm not a fan of socially conscious cuts unless it deals with a certain Marvin Gaye album or there is some "rhythm" and "nation" involved. Call me a meanie bofeenie, but sometimes these songs end up being a bit too preachy or extremely overblown that they are cringe-worthy. Though I had a change of heart when Will W. over at his great Pop Maven blog let me have a listen at Canadian R&B star, Jully Black's cut "Running". Thus, I knew this was going to be something that would be pleasing to my ears. "Running" rides on a skittish drum/handclap beat with an infectious chorus and inspirational lyrics. Actually this song has gotten some multiple plays, just because of its positive nature and that it's an R&B song that isn't overrun with too many synth gimmicks or glossy hip-hop tricks. Refreshing indeed. Need a feel good song to spice up your day? Well, Jully Black has the remedy.
