The two covers below were songs I could not find on Youtube, Myspace or Soundcloud, so I’m doing the next best thing: posting them as Spotify links. If you don’t have Spotify yet, you will have to get an account and install the client on your computer or mobile device, and you only get limited […]
I’m winding down these series by finally featuring the Kate Bush covers that were big successes in their own right, because I want to spend less time YouTube-surfing and more time working on my art. Which is what I did today, and I almost forgot to actually write a blog post featuring Placebo’s version of […]
In a recent interview in Der Spiegel, Kate Bush was asked what she thought about the influence she has on a number of top hiphop artists. Her answer was that she’s aware of it, and that she is very pleased with it. As for me, I was less aware of it, because I don’t normally […]
I thought I had already featured this version of “Running Up That Hill” by American Darkwave/Gothic duo Faith and The Muse, because the name rang a bell. But apparently not. I like the drum parts on this one; other than that it’s not that distinctive.
An industrial/Darkwave cover by German band Tilt. From 1990, making this one of the earliest covers so far. Interesting, though perhaps a little too long.
I will try very hard not to do another six versions of “Running Up That Hill” in a row. It’s Kate’s most-covered song by a large margin, but it gets to be a bit much. Believe me, even I get sick of “Running Up That Hill” eventually. In fact, I was heartily sick of it […]
So… I’ve had a not very good day, starting with a medical checkup that had to be aborted because I could not tolerate the procedure even under sedation, and ending with me waiting an hour for the train home from work because an accident further down the line meant that several trains were canceled. Also, […]
Find more tracks by Dave Rummans on Myspace Music I am still looking for embeddables of some of my favorite versions of “Running Up That Hill”. Luckily, Myspace had this acoustic guitar-based version by Dave Rummans, which is really neat.
German-born composer and vocalist Theo Bleckmann takes “Running Up That Hill” into a tense, atmospheric direction as part of his Hello Earth project, due for release this year. I like this version a lot, though the entrance of the guitar at 5:14 is a bit disruptive. A minor fault, to my ears, and probably in […]
Vind meer artiesten als Thee Heavenly Music Association op Myspace Music It turns out that some of my favorite Kate Bush covers don’t exist on YouTube at all! Can you imagine something not existing on YouTube in 2011? So I’m now finding myself looking for the tracks on Rupert Murdoch’s evil empire. Don’t say I […]
