"Does anybody out there remember how this song got everybody on the dance floor at any club in N.Y.C?"

Sure do! I was in Army when that song came out. Had an 8-track of this along with 'Everybody Loves the Sunshine'. Those two songs took me all the way from Fayetteville , NC. to Santa Monica, CA! Crusin in a sweet 63 Ford Galaxy. Just me, I-10 and Roy Ayers vibes! Those were the days!!!

Roy Ayers; "Running Away" is one of those great hits that you never heard play on the radio after the seventies. This song has been in my head for thirty years, I can't believe it was the song that came up when I typed in the artist. Does anybody out there remember how this song got everybody on the dance floor at any club in N.Y.C? This song is a timeless masterpiece! I'm sure the young people of today would move to it's beat, maybe do a remix, but I say just play it and turn up the volumn!
