Good Cover Version: Mu Does Kate Bush

Pulp gave the world the song "Bad Cover Version." But seeing as I'm a sonic optimist, I'm of the belief that there's more likely than not more good cover versions floating around than bad ones. Good Cover Version celebrates the good, and leaves all that bad and ugly stuff alone.

I must say, the more I listen to Mu's cover of "Running Up That Hill," the more I like it. The Canadian duo has given Madame Bush a frosty, synthy treatment, all the while keeping the fierce, feline ferocity of the original. The electro twist offers an unexpectedly awesome new lens with which to experience this truly classic song.
