Running If You Call My Name by Haim (Track Review)

Running if You Call my Name on iTunes
It took me two seconds to decide that I loved this song. Two seconds! This tickling excitement is what I was hoping to feel for last week's iTunes single Tether by Chvrches. I was waiting for the feeling of being teleported into some imaginary place or some place in history that this soundtrack would be perfect for. Music for me is like an index to my personal history, specific epochs in my life. The best ones take me somewhere in my past, in my memory, in an alternate reality, where something significant happened to me. It stirs my mind, heart and soul. This song does that to me.

The best feature of this song is the lead vocal, Danielle Haim. Danielle is joined on background vocals by her sisters Alana and Este. Danielle has the kind of voice that tugs at the heartstrings. It reflects maturity and soul. It constitutes a perfect marriage with the melody and ethereal quality of this song. I cannot say enough of it and I cannot get enough of this song! Does my excitement filter through to my writing?! Maybe not. But only because I am reeling it all in. Everyone, please listen to this song! (And if you hate it, do tell me. Haha. I'd love to hear a different opinion.)
