Come Cover Me: Running Up That Hill by Within Temptation

This song was covered by WT in 2003 released as a single. The original song is by the British singer/songwriter Kate Bush and was released in 1985. This song has been covered by many bands and appeared in couple of TV serials such as CSI, Vampire Diaries or Bones. I came across this song last year and it was Placebo's cover. Later on I realised that I had heard that song already. It was WT's cover which I saw many years ago on VIVA channel but I totally forgot about it. I am not a big fan of this song. The video and movements of Sharon are awkward and as I already said I have never really been fond of the white line across her eyes. I must admit that Placebo's cover is the one that I like the most.

So here you go:

WT's version:
Placebo's version:  

Icon & The Black Roses's version:  

Club For Five's version:

Kate Bush's version:

I've loved Kate Bush since I was a teenager! I remember this song very well. Before now, I'd only heard the Placebo cover feat. Kate Bush, and thought it was OK. I have to say I really don't like WT's version at all.
