Get Some Sleep

Album: Beautiful Collision (2002)
  • The refrain of this uptempo, overtly commercial track is "I believe I might be having fun," and Runga is clearly a girl who is doing that here. An obvious single, it received heavy airplay in her native New Zealand where it was first performed at "a few intimate shows at The Odeon, in Auckland" early in 2002. With a fine blend of electric and acoustic guitars and laid back harmonies, "Get Some Sleep" was a deserved top ten hit in both Ireland and Japan.
  • Multi-instrumentalist Runga spent a grueling two years touring the United States, which is clearly what inspired the song: "From here to there to everywhere, then back to Union Square. Where do I get some sleep?" >>
