"So Young"
"Runaway (Remix)"

"So Young" is a song by the Irish folk rock band The Corrs from their album Talk on Corners, written by Sharon Corr. It is a song about her parents, Jean and Gerry Corr, who she believed were 'forever young'.[1] The song, released as a single, reached number 29 on the Republic of Ireland pop music charts and number 6 in the United Kingdom. The band initially had to fight with their label to include the song on the album, a decision vindicated by its popularity.

Music video[edit]

This video was shot in Chicago as the Corrs were on tour in the US at that time (21 October 1998). Lots of shooting took place in and around the Flamingo Building. The structure that gives the building its name is 53 feet high and was designed by Alexander Calder in 1974. The Corrs are standing on the top of the Flamingo Building throwing paper planes into the windy air.
