"Runaway" is famous for Del Shannon's powerfully hypnotic vocal but also for its pioneering inclusion of Max Cook's sci-fi-sounding electric piano, the Musitron; a modified clavioline invented by Max Cook himself. Former US Army serviceman Del Shannon went to number one in the US and topped the pop charts in 10 countries with this catchy 1960s heartbreaker about getting jilted. "Runaway" has also been a popular cover song through the ages, with everyone from Elvis Presley (who introduced his version on stage at the International Hotel in Las Vegas in August 1969) and Bonnie Raitt (who released the song as a single in 1977) to US punk heroes The Misfits (who covered the track for their 2003 album Project 1950) taking their turn at the wheel. "Runaway" has also had its fair share of small and big screen moments, appearing in the 1973 movie American Graffiti, the 2020 film Siberia, and several times in TV show Dexter: New Blood.
