9:30 Coffee Break: Runaway Hits

Coffee Break
What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

Yesterday afternoon, two therapy llamas got loose in Sun City, Arizona, roaming through streets and parking lots as authorities, wranglers and random citizens attempted to catch them. The ABC affiliate in Phoenix provided live coverage of the chase from its news copter, and the story quickly went viral. The world seemed to stop in its tracks to watch as the llamas ran through the streets of Sun City.

The entire escapade ended well for all involved, but in the spirit of llamas on the lam, we're thinking about songs having to do with running and running away.
