Props to the SyFy Channel show Warehouse 13 for their use of  the Kate Bush song Running Up That Hill remade by Track and Field. The song built-up towards a powerful and emotional climax in the season finale.  It made that scene.

I was predisposed to dislike the remake as the first few words trickled in but then it started to grow on me, likely due to the visual association with the scene.  After the first several seconds the lyrics had me and it was 1985 all over again.  Not Kate herself but her words and a moving new musical interpretation.

My first response was to download a copy from the Zune Marketplace but satisfaction was denied.  Much of Kate’s work, including this remake, were unavailable.   You can download a copy from Itunes, of course.  They seem to have everything.
