100 Cover Versions #42: Will Young covers 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)' by Kate Bush

Here is the third cover version of a song by Kate Bush on my list following earlier posts of Cloudbusting by Gemma Hayes and Babooshka by Jaime Nanci & The Blue Boys. This one is Will Young's cover of Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God). Will continues to be one of my most listened to male vocalists. I've loved all of his last few singles from his Echoes album including his newest one I Just Want A Lover which is released on June 25th. 

Here is a beautifully structured version of Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) that he recorded for Dermot O'Leary's Radio 2 show in August of 2011. Will has sung it live at concerts too so hopefully I will see him sing it at a future concert in Dublin someday.
