Kate Bush first hit the big time 45 years ago when she topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single Wuthering Heights, making her the first female artist to do so with a self-written track. And now the 64-year-old, who was appointed a CBE in 2013 by the late Queen, has been honoured by having one of her biggest hits selected for King Charles III’s official Coronation Celebration Playlist on Spotify.
The playlist of 27 songs has been hand-selected on behalf of His Majesty by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport and includes plenty of classic acts like Queen, The Beatles and David Bowie among the newer ones. And included among them as the 13th track on the Spotify playlist is Bush’s Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God).
The 1985 lead single of her Hounds of Love album hit No 3 in the UK upon release. And with its inclusion in Strange Things season 4 last year the song has seen an incredible return to the charts.
Last year Running Up That Hill topped the charts in eight countries, including the UK for three consecutive weeks, Ireland for seven and Australia for nine non-consecutive. It also hit a new peak of No 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 2022.
Bush wrote the single in just one evening at home and said the lyrics spoke of the inability of men and women to understand each other. The track explores the idea of the sexes making “a deal with God” to exchange places and understand each other better. In fact, A Deal with God was the original song title but EMI Records worried it would make the track unpopular in more religious countries.
