"Running Up That Hill" by The Baltimores
When Tom asked us to be a part of this incredible project I
thought, "cover a Kate Bush song? No Problem." But the task ahead ended up being
far more challenging than I could have ever imagined. At practice we batted around a few
interpretations, but we weren't really satisfied. We felt it wasn't enough.
During the few days between practices, I went to a sensory
deprivation tank in hopes that it would give me a few ideas. I didn't make any
progress on the Kate Bush song but I did end up writing a song called, "Here I Am
Floating In A Big Black Box." Anyway, by the next practice Davey Smith came in
with a well thought out sketch that ended up being our contribution to the album.
