33. Chromatics - Running Up That Hill (2007)

The original by Kate Bush was an eerie song that was sung in the typical over-the-top manner that Bush was known for throughout her career. While still remaining a good song, this cover by Chromatics off of their 2007 album Night Drive takes the eeriness of the original and adds a sense of melancholy and loneliness, as well. I feel like the updated electronics on this version do the song better justice, and make it all the more effective than the original from 1985 ever could have ever been. The lyrics are also amazing, but that credit definitely belongs to Kate Bush.
