1985: Running Up That Hill By Kate Bush 

Composed and recorded by English singer and songwriter Kate Bush. The original title of the song was A Deal With God. Kate Bush agreed to change the title after representatives at record label EMI raised concerns about possible negative reception because of the use of the word God. However, the album version of the song is listed as Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God). The 2012 remix of the song is included in the official album for the London 2012 Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony. The original version of Running Up That Hill was used as the theme song for the 1986 BBC Television children’s drama Running Scared. Genre: New Wave.
