No Doubt is a phenomenal music group that has been around since the mid-80s and is still relevant today, due to their uncanny ability to evolve.
A lot of bands tend to stick to the old trends of days past and for some this works, but for most they lose momentum. No Doubt is a group that continues to push the envelope and generate new ideas/sounds in music to maintain a steady fan base in this ever-changing world.
Unhinged Reviews has chosen "Running" from the Rock Steady album to review for it's sincere
message to the heart.
From the high pitched synth tones to Gwen's sweet croon, your stripped away of worldly facades down to the essence of your heart. No matter how tough and hardened people try to act, Love is one of the many treasures that we can experience on this land. If you've ever had a relationship or a genuine fondness of someone that you didn't want to lose, you can easily identify with this song. As we all know, relationships are something that comes in like a whirlwind and can be gone just a quick. But what we tend to do is run for as long as we can until it is over or until we've made it to our destination.
Now the destination can be different from one couple to the next. One couple may want to have children and a nice home, while the other may opt for the freedom of traveling the world together. These things don't just happen, they take planning and patience, as well as, the hopes that you don't kill each other in the process. There are a lot of struggles and conflicts that arise in relationships which can weaken the bond between two individuals such as betrayal, unrealistic expectations and unexpected life events. When these things happen they can be earth-shattering or they can make you stronger as a unit.
The struggle to maintain the relationship is the "Running" that No Doubt refers to in their soothing ballad. Relationships are a journey, you have to take them as such, if you go to fast you'll burn yourself out and if you go to slow you might miss the boat. But when your ideas line up with the ideas of your loved one, you find a rhythm, a pulse so to speak and this can be bliss. The pulse of your relationship thrives on the passion that the two individuals share over the duration of their connection. Connections can break, so I guess this is the reason that we run until our footsteps become one and we reach our final destination.
"Running" is an amazing song that captures the journey we often take when we find someone suitable to our taste. Now, reading this are probably some that are currently running, have ran, or have made it to that special place. So my advice to those that haven't yet begun to run or don't even understand what we're discussing here would be to get your sneakers ready because Love could be your next step.
