Coachella Playlist: Runaway by Kanye West

I'm a sucker for tutus and pointe shoes so this Kanye West video got my attention right away. And when the song started to play ... let's just say he had me at "Let's have a toast to the douchebags."

That's actually not an attempt at sarcasm. I'm probably not supposed to like this song but I do. I like how self aware it is. I don't mind having people in my life with quirks, a splash too much attitude, or the odd complex here and there. Heck, I don't even really mind douchebags all that much. They have their entertaining moments, too.

As far as I'm concerned, you can be whatever you want to be as long as you own it. The only thing that really bothers me is when people try to pass themselves off as something they're not. There's no need to be the wolf in sheep's clothing. The sheep would probably put me to sleep anyway. So shed the shearling and proudly howl at the moon. 
Baby, I got a plan
Run away as fast as you can
Run away from me, baby, run away
Doesn't have to get crazy
At least the dude gives fair warning. Well played, Kanye. See you in 40 days.


  1. I'm not usually a Hip Hop or Rap fan, but I absolutely love this entire CD and could not stop listening to it. Did you see his performance of this on SNL? It was awesome!

  2. I should probably get the CD! I missed that, I'll definitely have to look it up!
