I was already a huge fan of Leona Lewis (she did make my favorite song of 2008) but her version of Snow Patrol's "Run" takes that love to a whole new level. I started listening to it obsessively about a month ago- something about Leona's vocals totally cast an unbreakable spell upon me to the point where I have to listen to all of her songs on repeat for hours- but it wasn't until a couple of days ago that I realized just how beautiful it is. "Run" is so beautiful that I honestly believe that if I was in the right state of mind, it could actually bring me to tears (and no song has ever done that for me). It also never fails to amaze me that she turned a not bad indie rock ballad into a pop power anthem on par with Celine Dion's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" or Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You." Is it too soon to call "Run" my favorite song of 2009?
