Song In My Head #68: “Runaway Girl” by Chariot

Posies co-founder Ken Stringfellow and his many side projects have been praised here before. Today we revisit Chariot’s I Am Ben Hur, released on Spain’s (awesome) Munster Records in 1997. Chariot featured Stringfellow, White Flag’s (since deceased) Pat Fear, Posies/Fountains of Wayne drummer Brian Young, and the Zeros’ Javier Escovedo. (I heard the Zeros’ “Beat Your Heart Out” in the Santa Cruz Streetlight Records recently, and remembered how much I always enjoyed that LA band. But I digress.) “Runaway Girl” is a departure from the rest of the rather raucous album, but no less lovely for that:
