Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that "Love Runs Out" is a rousing rock-pop anthem with a great beat by Colorado-based pop band OneRepublic. It's very catchy and clean, with strong vocals and a fabulous music video.
What's the story?
LOVE RUNS OUT is a single by OneRepublic, an American pop-rock band from Colorado Springs. Formed in 2002 by Ryan Tedder and Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on MySpace as an unsigned act and eventually signed with Interscope. "Love Runs Out" is a gospel-inflected pop-rock anthem about faith and love and is included on the reissue of the band's 2013 album Native.
Is it any good?
"Love Runs Out" is a rousing anthem with strong tribal drums, positive and inspiring lyrics, and soaring vocals. The video for the song is just as striking, with its backdrop of setting suns in red skies, majestic horses, dancers with ribbons tied to tambourines, and a beautiful older woman playing the piano. You'll want to turn the volume up on this track -- it's hard to deny this foot-stomping sing-along song.
