Suzan Mutesi – “Love Run Remix”

Suzan Mutesi’s “Love Run Remix” is an interesting reinterpretation of her previously released conventionally bouncy electronic Christian pop song “Love Run”.  Both the original song and the remix feature beautifully crafted electronic elements, careful production, and the kind of shiny auto-tuned vocals we’ve come to expect from the genre. The remix, however, follows its own unique muse, daring to wander farther from its mainstream influences into a more free-form direction that even explores melodic tonalities not often found in electronic pop songs.

The first verse begins with a declaration of Christ’s love.

Love!  Your sacred heart was all you had in mind.
When tension rose you gave Yourself for me in zeal.
To live – Love paid it all FOR YOU and Me.
Yeah FOR YOU and Me.
I have been set free!

The chorus then states and repeats the main theme of the song:

Your love is running after me.  When I fall you catch me!
Your love is running after me.  When I fall you catch me!

A second verse uses imagery of love, innocence, and joy to paint an  emotional word picture anticipating her future heavenly home.

Kisses – baby laughter – Heaven you’ve built for me
When All is gone in dust I will trust your love to lead Me home

Love paid it all FOR YOU and Me.
Yeah FOR YOU and Me.
I have been set free!

A little over 2 minutes into the track, the beat drops out for a change-up section that leads into a surprisingly energized rap section!  Suzan’s choice to contrast the sleek beauty of her vocal with the spoken energy of a male  voice makes this section of the song really stand out.

Jesus your love is what I bleed.
A best friend so close when I need.
Walk with no fear you shining thru.
My king J-E-S-US rules.
yeah

I wont trip or fall.
I know I win when your involved.

I was saved, your amazing grace,
you’re the start and the finish of my race.

We lit with your glory – turn it up!
Energy overflowing – that’s wassup!

I’m overcoming – I cant get enough.
My cup runneth over from all your love!

The spectacular rap sequence ends as suddenly as it appears, with Suzan’s ethereal vocal returning to the main theme to wrap things up.

“Your love is running after me. When I fall you catch me. Love.”
