R is for Running Up That Hill

Originally titled 'A Deal with God', representatives at EMI were reportedly hesitant to release a song with that title. But that is essentially what it is... because we would get such a better point of view if men and women could swap roles for a while... if, through divine intervention, the soldier's wife could truly swap places with the soldier, and be 'Running Up That Hill'...

The original version was released as part of the 'Hounds of Love' album in 1984 and as a single in 1985. A new 2012 remix was released, premiering during the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony.
