En post om musikens påverkan ..

 För 35 år sedan släppte den mystiska Brittiska sångerskan Kate Bush låten Running up that hill.
En låt som enligt henne själv handlar om hur två personer skulle förstå varandra bättre om dom helt enkelt bytte plats med varandra: 

“I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can’t understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other’s roles, if we could actually be in each other’s place for a while, I think we’d both be very surprised! [Laughs] And I think it would be led to a greater understanding. And really the only way I could think it could be done was either … you know, I thought a deal with the devil, you know. And I thought, ‘Well, no, why not a deal with God!’ You know, because in a way it’s so much more powerful, the whole idea of asking God to make a deal with you. You see, for me it is still called ‘Deal With God,’ that was its title. But we were told that if we kept this title that it wouldn’t be played in any of the religious countries, Italy wouldn’t play it, France wouldn’t play it, and Australia wouldn’t play it! Ireland wouldn’t play it, and that generally [meant] we might get it blacked purely because it had ‘God’ in the title. Now, I couldn’t believe this, this seemed completely ridiculous to me and the title was such a part of the song’s entity. I just couldn’t understand it. But none the less, although I was very unhappy about it, I felt unless I compromised that I was going to be cutting my own throat, you know, I’d just spent two, three years making an album and we weren’t gonna get this record played on the radio, if I was stubborn. So I felt I had to be grown up about this, so we changed it to ‘Running Up That Hill.’ But it’s always something I’ve regretted doing, I must say. And normally I always regret any compromises that I make.”


Jag minns ganska tydligt första gången jag hörde den, hemma i vardagsrummet i mitt första hem nångång 1987.
Den spelades från en av mammas kassettband med Mr Music eller något liknande och jag förtrollades direkt av den där basgången i början av låten.
Den har alltid funnits där under livets toppar och dalar. 

Jag hörde den på radion efter ett uppbrott i en relation för snart 1,5 år sen. 
Aldrig någonsin har väl en låt passat så bra in på hur man känner.
Vi försökte lappa ihop förhållandet ett par gånger, men det funkade inte. Hur mycket man älskar någon måste man till slut inse att en kärlek inte ska trasas sönder på grund av varandras olikheter. 
Nånstans inser jag ju att det inte går att göra varandra olyckliga, när allt man vill är att vara lycklig och trygg.



Så .. här kommer den:



It doesn't hurt me
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know, know that it doesn't hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I'm making?

You
It's you and me

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh...

You don't want to hurt me
But see how deep the bullet lies
Unaware I'm tearing you asunder
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts
Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don't we?

You
It's you and me
It's you and me, won't be unhappy

And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh...

You
It's you and me
It's you and me, won't be unhappy

Oh come on, baby
Oh come on, darling
Let me steal this moment from you now
Oh come on, angel
Come on, come on, darling
Let's exchange the experience, oh


And if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems


Say, if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

Say, if I only could
I'd make a deal with God
And I'd get him to swap our places
I'd be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

Say, if I only could
Be running up that hill
With no problems
If I only could, be running up that hill
If I only could, be running up that hill
