Song of The Day (Placebo, ‘Running Up That Hill’)

“Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)” was the first single from Kate Bush’s 1985 album Hounds of Love. Written by Bush, it features highly literate lyrics and impassioned vocals. It was released as a single in the UK on August 5, 1985, with the album appearing on shelves on September 16, 1985.

Placebo’s cover of the Kate Bush classic was first released as a bonus track on their 2003 release, “Sleeping With Ghosts”, but has been featured recently on Fox’s T.V. shows The OC and on Bones in 2006.
