Just heard The Runner and I am just so confused as to why it's not chosen as the lead single for this era. The build-up towards the end and the drama as the song progresses by each minute are just astounding! The beginning bits sound a bit dated but that's what makes Steps sound so unique. It's funny that as soon as I hear it, I hear "ABBA". It's not the case when Bananarama's doing it or even Third Degree. Steps definitely put a stamp on it! The Runner = Tragedy x The Slightest Touch.
