This is easily Bobby Vee's best single. Vee played the part of the altruistic lover in many of his songs. The pop of "Take Good Care of My Baby", "Sharing You" all share the same theme: you can take my girl, but I really love her and I would welcome her back.

But "Run to Him" rises to almost epic tragic proportions. It's really "classical" pop music, with interesting chord changes that lead to an impressive climax. "Take Good Care of My Baby" and "Rubber Ball" showcase a fairly wimpy Vee, while "Run to Him" almost makes Bobby some sort of "Jesus of Romance".

The flip side is a nice catchy King-Goffin pop tune, which could have been a hit on its own.

Most of the Vee catalog follows the same ilk. Finally, with the release of "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", Bobby grows balls and shows some suspicion for his beloved. But by that time, the Beatles had entered the pop picture and no one was listening to Bobby Vee anymore.

Thank God for Carole King and Gerry Goffin. As no one was producing great rock and roll during this fallow period, at least we could count on King and Goffin to offer up some intelligent pop music at this time.
