Running Up That Hill – Song Of The Day

Kate BushThe first single from Kate Bush‘s classic 1985 album Hounds Of Love, “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” certainly made an impact back in the day both in the charts and with its minimalist contemporary dance video. The song’s cool thumping rhythm hooks you in straight away and never lets go as Bush slowly hypnotises you with her famously wide range of vocal tones. It’s, quite simply, the perfect Kate Bush song and even though there have been decent enough interpretations of it later on, from Placebo‘s more sinister effort to that 2012 remix, you just can’t improve on the original.

One of the 80’s’ very best: a must.
