SOUNDTRACK: Run by Hozier

Soundtrack to The Venetian and The Rum Runner by L.A. Witt

I chose this Hozier ballad for a book about an Irish gang working for an Italian mobster because the singer explained that this is a song based on a James Joyce quote about Ireland. I also relate the lines “Rare is this love, keep it covered / I need you to run to me, run to me, lover / Run until you feel your lungs bleeding” to Danny being magnetically drawn to the Italian mobster despite all that he stood for and Carmine offering protection to the hostile Irishman who made his heart beat faster.
