Audio sample

"Running Up That Hill" is a song by English singer and songwriter Kate Bush from her fifth studio album, Hounds of Love (1985). Written and produced by Bush, the song was released in the United Kingdom as the lead single from Hounds of Love on 5 August 1985 through EMI Records.[4] The B-side of the 7-inch single contains the song, "Under the Ivy". The 12-inch single, Bush's first release in that format, contains an extended remix and an instrumental version of "Running Up That Hill", as well as "Under the Ivy". A limited 7-inch single gatefold sleeve edition was also released. The song's title on the Hounds of Love album and all subsequent releases was "Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)".

Upon its original 1985 release, "Running Up That Hill" reached number three on the UK Singles Chart and number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and was Bush's first Top 40 hit in the latter country. In 2022, the song reached new peaks in both countries of number one in the United Kingdom and number four in the United States.[5][6] Bush performed the song live for the first time in 1987 at Secret Policeman's Third Ball event, backed by Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour.

The song was featured as the main theme song for the 1986 BBC 1 children's drama serial, Running Scared.[7] In 2012, a remix featuring newly recorded vocals, premiered during that year's Summer Olympics closing ceremony, returning to the UK top 10 for one week, at number six. In 2022, "Running Up That Hill" received renewed attention when it was prominently featured in season 4 of the Netflix series, Stranger Things. Its appearance led to the song's resurgence on charts around the world,[8][9] reaching the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the charts in eight countries, including the United Kingdom.

Background and title

"Running Up That Hill" was the first song Bush composed for the Hounds of Love album, originally titled "A Deal with God". It began life as a rough 8-track recording done at her then recently upgraded home studio in Summer 1983 using a LinnDrum, Fairlight CMI and piano.[10] Like other songs on the album, work continued on the original 8-track, which was transferred to two 24-track master tapes for further overdubs. For this song, time was spent working the Fairlight hook but the rest of the song ideas and elements were already in place, including the LinnDrum part programmed by Del Palmer, the opening "wind train" sound and Bush's guide vocal.[10]

Representatives at EMI Records were hesitant to release the song with its original title of "A Deal with God" owing to possible negative reception in more religious countries because of its use of the word "God".[11] Bush relented and changed the title. However, the album version of the song is listed as "Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)". EMI executives initially wanted to release another song, "Cloudbusting", as the lead single from Hounds of Love. Bush persuaded them to release "Running Up That Hill" first, claiming that it was the first song written for the album, and felt that it better represented the broader feel for the album.

The song itself has often been misinterpreted. Bush herself has said,

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 blocked purely because it had God in the title.[11][12]

Music video

The music video features Bush performing an interpretive dance with dancer Michael Hervieu. The video was directed by David Garfath while the dance routines were choreographed by Diane Grey.[13] Bush and Hervieu are shown wearing grey Japanese hakamas.[14] Bush wanted the dancing in "Running Up That Hill" to be more of a classical performance. She stated that dance in music videos was "being used quite trivially, it was being exploited: haphazard images, busy, lots of dances, without really the serious expression, and wonderful expression, that dance can give. So we felt how interesting it would be to make a very simple routine between two people, almost classic, and very simply filmed. So that's what we tried, really, to do a serious piece of dance."[15]

The choreography draws upon contemporary dance with a repeated gesture suggestive of drawing a bow and arrow (the gesture was made literal on the cover for the single in which Bush poses with a real bow and arrow), intercut with surreal sequences of Bush and Hervieu searching through crowds of masked strangers. At the climax of the song, Bush's partner withdraws from her and the two are then swept away from each other and down a long hall in opposite directions by an endless stream of anonymous figures wearing masks made from pictures of Bush and Hervieu's faces. MTV chose not to show this video (at the time of its original release) and instead used a playback "live" performance of the song recorded at a promotional appearance on the BBC TV show Wogan. According to Paddy Bush, "MTV weren't particularly interested in broadcasting videos that didn't have synchronized lip movements in them. They liked the idea of people singing songs."[15]

(2012)

On 12 August 2012, Bush released a new version of the song "Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)" via her Fish People label.[17] Subtitled '2012 Remix', it uses the backing track of the extended version of the 1985 12-inch single, over which new lead vocals were recorded. The track was transposed down a semitone to fit Bush's current lower vocal range. The new version was premiered during the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony. Bush did not appear herself, but the recording was featured in a section of the closing ceremony, after the entry of athletes and prior to the presentation of the medals for the Marathon. The track set the theme to a dance performance, where a 'hill' or pyramid was gradually assembled by the dancers from giant white blocks, representing each of the Olympic events.[18] The performance was not shown in the United States NBC coverage due to time constraints and tape delay issues.[19]

The track is included in the official soundtrack album of the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony A Symphony of British Music: Music for the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games. On 19 August the remix entered the UK charts at number 6. It was Bush's return to the top ten after nearly seven years, following "King of the Mountain" in 2005.[20]

Impact and legacy

The song was ranked number 3 among the "Tracks of the Year" for 1985 by NME.[21] It was featured in the pilot episode of the 2018 drama series Pose.[22][23][24] In 2022, the song was included in the list "The story of NME in 70 (mostly) seminal songs", at number 25.[25]

The single had sold 771,568 copies in the United Kingdom after 1994, with 165,762 of those sales in 2022.[26]

"Running Up That Hill" has been critically acclaimed.[citation needed] In a retrospective review, AllMusic journalist Amy Hanson wrote: "Always adept at emotion and beautifully able to manipulate even the most bitter of hearts, rarely has Bush penned such a brutally truthful, painfully sensual song."[27]

2022 popularity

"Running Up That Hill" gained renewed attention in May 2022 after it was prominently featured in the fourth season of Stranger Things, including as a key diegetic piece used during a dramatic scene.[28] Bush had been known to rarely allow her songs to be licensed, but after Stranger Things' directors, the Duffer Brothers, approached her to use her song, she revealed she had been a fan of the show and appreciated the planned use of the song.[29]

On the Official Singles Chart on 3 June 2022, the single re-entered the UK top 10 at number eight,[30][31] reaching number two the following week. Chart analyst James Masterton of Chart Watch opined that "Running Up That Hill" could reach number one, but because it was an older song re-entering the chart, the Official Charts Company's accelerated chart ratio (ACR) rule meant that its 700,000 per day streams were halved when factored in for the chart and counted for less than the 400,000 streams per day for that week's number one "As It Was" by Harry Styles.[32] Bush's record label EMI made an official request to suspend the ACR rule for "Running Up That Hill" given the song's continued popularity and sales on streaming charts, which was enacted by the Chart Supervisory Committee over the weekend of 11 June 2022.[33] "Running Up That Hill" reached number one on the UK Singles Chart on 17 June 2022 and was Bush's first number one since "Wuthering Heights" in 1978.[34] Upon reaching number one, Bush broke three chart records: the longest wait between number ones in the history of the UK chart, the longest time taken between a song's release and it reaching number one, and the oldest female artist to reach number one.[34] On 24 June 2022, the song charted at number one for a second week.[35] The song also reached number one in eight other countries: Australia,[36] Belgium,[37] Ireland,[38] Lithuania,[39], Luxembourg,[40] New Zealand,[41] Sweden,[42] and Switzerland.

In the United States, "Running Up That Hill" re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 on the chart dated 11 June 2022 at number eight, an improvement on the single's initial 1985 peak of number 30 and also becoming Bush's highest charting single on the Hot 100 to date. The song reached number four the following week, becoming Bush’s first single to reach the American top five.[43][44] The song also charted on Billboard's rock charts, and peaked at number one on both Hot Alternative Songs and Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and debuted at number 26 on the Alternative Airplay chart, Bush's first entry on the latter chart since "Rubberband Girl" in January 1994.[45]

Bush thanked her fans on her website, noting that "many young people who love the show [were] discovering the song for the first time," and that "the response to 'Running Up That Hill' is something that has had its own energy and volition. A direct relationship between the shows and their audience and one that has stood completely outside of the music business."[46]

The song was used once again in a trailer for the second part of the fourth season.[47]
