Hans’ Pick of The Day on Tuesday….

Take It on the Run” is the fifth track on the REO Speedwagon album, Hi Infidelity. It was released as a single in 1981 and reached #5 on the Billboard charts. The song was written by guitarist Gary Richrath. “Take It on the Run” was the follow up single behind the group’s #1 hit, “Keep On Loving You”. The cover band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes has punk-covered this song for their live album Ruin Jonny’s Bar Mitzvah.

This song, unlike “Keep On Loving You” and REO Speedwagon’s eventual second #1 hit, “Can’t Fight This Feeling“, is not a power ballad. It is faster and has a forty-seven second guitar solo.
