I'll later go back and set up the 2022 thread, but I just heard that Running on Empty was recorded at Merriweather Post
As well as the Load Out/Stay.  A couple of the tunes on the album were recorded in a holiday inn in Illinois. Another one on the tour bus. Fun album.

I was watching AXS TV top 10 list shows, and the topic was top ten "running" songs.  Gimmick was the song had to have run / ran in the title or be about running, either moving or being in charge.  I was floored Born to Run was only #10.  Top 3 were Band on the Run, Running on Empty, and I think Run Like Hell.  There was also a Jay Z, Rihanna, Kanye collaboration that was either #3 or #4. 

I would have considered Psycho Killer (run run run run runaway) on my list.

Without seeing that list, and leaving out the ones you listed, the ones that spring to mind:

Steve Miller Band - "Take the Money and Run"
CCR - "Run Through the Jungle"
Sweet - "Fox on the Run"
Bon Jovi - "Runaway"
Iron Maiden - "Run to the Hills"
A Flock of Seagulls - "I Ran"

And then there's The Runaways, Dexys Midnight Runners and Run-DMC.

It's not about running, but in "Der Kommissar", Falco spends the entire video running in front of a screen.

How could you have a list like this without Born To Run?

Not only is this a great song with the word "run" in it's title, it's also a great running song.



Also,
Van Halen's "Running with the Devil"
Tom Petty's "Running down a Dream"
Blues Traveler's "Run Around"
Bad Company "Run with the Pack"
Reo Speedwagon "Take it on the Run"
And of course, who could forget Y&T's "Don't Stop Runnin'"

Dong Europa was way dongier than Dong War or Dong Boy.

somehow I got around to this this morning.


Highlight for me is during the middle of Prince's solo, when he turns towards Dani Harrison and starts to fall backwards, and Dani just cracks the biggest smile at the playing and theatrics.  Not a very Harrison expression. I hate to say because the original is one of my long time favorites and a highlight on my favorite mix tape from college, but Prince blows away Clapton's solo on the original.  Vocals are good too.

it really would have been nice to have Dani play with McCartney and Ringo when they performed together a couple of years ago.

I read somewhere that this was a) unrehearsed and b) Prince's guitar got thrown in the air at the end and then disappeared and has yet to resurface.  No idea whether there is any truth to this, but being Prince, it would not surprise me much.

I'd like to know if Prince made pancakes for everyone after the show (Chapelle reference if you don't get it)

  TBH, I was never a hard core Prince follower, mostly distracted by he general weird projected persona, lyrics, and his presentation / act, but I realize I missed out on one of the greatest guitarists when he was performing.
