Seven 9s and 10s

Running Up That Hill




Placebo - Running Up That Hill (Kate Bush cover)

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places

One morning in 2008 this song was playing on WBER as my alarm went off, but I didn’t wake up.  Instead, my body did that thing where you stay asleep and your brain incorporates the song into your dream.  You know what I’m talking about?  Of course you do.  Everyone has had that experience.

Let me tell you, it was the most cinematic dream I’ve ever had.  It was some sort of epic underwater fantasy/sci-fi battle, like The Abyss meets Lord of the Rings meets Braveheart - complete with swords and chambers and creatures and bubbles and awesomeness.

Subsequently, this was my 6th favorite song of 2008.
