  • Lyrics
  • Although "Sway" is far from the best song the talented Miss Runga has ever penned - a fairly run of the mill "love me, baby" type number - it has inspired more impersonators than Elvis. All over the YouTube website can be found recordings of this track, many by young girls of Oriental appearance or origin like Bic herself (who is half Chinese).
    The original runs to around 4 minutes 19 seconds, and found its way onto the soundtrack of the 1999 teen flick American Pie. >>

  • In a short webnote The Stories Behind The Songs on the record "Drive", the lady herself said of this track: "I wrote it while I was in Ireland. Before I went, while on my way to the airport, I noticed a bridge that had the word 'sway' written on it. I didn't understand how the person got up there to write the graffiti and why they wrote the word, but I just decided 'I like that word - that's the title of my next song.'"
