“Running Up that Hill” is the most popular song of Kate Bush’s earlier years. Originally it was named “A Deal with God”, but was later changed due use of the word “God”. Giving the song a new name was successful, as well as giving it a new versions. The British Placebo covered the track and released it originally on the bonus disc of their album “Sleeping with Ghosts”, and soon included it on another one: “Covers”.
