Kate Bush's original sounds like someone desperate and frustrated with the situation, keeping a secret they'd rather not. Placebo's is more paranoid, quieter, resigned to the fate they're in. They'd like to make the deal with God, but God's not there. WT's version is someone riding out to rage at the Fates. They'd make the deal, but they're ready to fight in the meantime.
what's wrong with U people with this sucking ? we are not interested how u entertain
yourselves at home :P what's important here is that its a great song, much better than original imo :)
placebo's version is different but also great,
however it has its own place for comments on last.fm
