This summer my friend showed me this awesome 80s electronic song by none other than Kate Bush, creator of the humorously bizarre “Wuthering Heights”, “Babushka”, and “Pi” (yes, the number pi in song form). This one’s called “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” and it’s from her equally awesome 1985 breakthrough album Hounds Of Love:

Quite awhile after that, British alt-rock band Placebo did this incredible cover, turning Kate Bush’s powerful lyrics into something more appropriately sinister, with a rather brooding video to match:

Both versions are equally amazing and are a true testament to Kate Bush’s songwriting abilities. Watch and enjoy.
