Today  is  Day 2 of Musicalmarch, so I want to share a  song I  have loved  for  a long time , original  and  a cover  version.

I have  loved  Kate Bush  for ever  and have always felt  a connection  with her  lyrics  and music. She writes such beautiful lyrics.

Running up  the  Hill , resonates  with  my  life  the  awful feeling of  running  through  quick  sand  just  to  get  through  the day. She  explains it perfectly the hopelessness we all feel at  different  points in our life.

Apparently  I  have always misinterpreted the song, this  is  what Kate  Bush  said  about  the  it.

I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can’t understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other’s roles, if we could actually be in each other’s place for a while, I think we’d both be very surprised! [Laughs] And I think it would lead to a greater understanding. And really the only way I could think it could be done was either… you know, I thought a deal with the devil, you know. And I thought, ‘well, no, why not a deal with God!’ You know, because in a way it’s so much more powerful the whole idea of asking God to make a deal with you. You see, for me it is still called “Deal With God”, that was its title. But we were told that if we kept this title that it would not be played in any of the religious countries, Italy wouldn’t play it, France wouldn’t play it, and Australia wouldn’t play it! Ireland wouldn’t play it, and that generally we might get it blacked purely because it had God in the title.

Personally I  still think it  describes life’s struggles. What  do  you think?

Below  is  the  very  best of  the  many  covers of  this  beautiful  song, it is by Placebo. The  Video is  really  special!It makes  me  think   everybody struggles  with life .

    These are new to me. I haven’t understood the words to songs forever… guess it’s my hearing. 😉

    Mr Grump loves this song. Kate Bush is such a talented and intelligent woman. I never new the story behind this song, but it adds another layer to it! 🙂
