12.08.2012 Running Up That Hill (2012 Remix) released
13.08.1985 Running Up That Hill enters the British singles chart at number 9. It garners enormous airplay and critical acclaim. It peaks at number 3 and is Kate's biggest single success since Wuthering Heights, far exceeding Babooshka in sales. In the U.S. the cable music channel MTV shy away from using the promotional video for Running Up That Hill, considering it to be too erotic. [This is certainly not the reason. MTV probably didn't like it because Kate didn't do any lip-synching and because it wasn't garish enough for their horrid, smarmy, miserable format. But too erotic for MTV? Hah.] Instead they use the Wogan performance. It remains on moderate rotation for two months.
