    I am looking for a song to use as soundtrack for a piece of a video where people flee a place by boat, feet and bus. It is supposed to be funny. Can you think of any typical runaway music?

    Serious Chase Music

    Pure Rock Fury - Clutch; starts slow with a buildup and then gets frantic

    Four Horsemen - Metallica

    Non-serious chase music

    The Sweetest Taboo - Sade; make sure you do slow cinematic shots and make the action looks serious and the result will pretty damn funny.
