My friend was kind enough to share with me the soundtrack from The Vampire Diaries which features the track Running Up That Hill, Placebo’s version that is, and it’s Fangtastic! Spooky, sinister, edgy and atmospheric, it’s no wonder it was chosen to feature in a show filled with vampires, witches, werewolves and magic.
I have always loved Kate Bush’s original song, having grown up watching my Dad’s old MTV tapes featuring her weird and wonderful videos, along with many other classic songs from the 80s and early 90s. Kate’s version is beautiful and ethereal. Same songs but two very different versions. I love them both but how about you?
I have posted both songs from youtube below. Let me know which one you prefer?
