Running up that hill

Stranger Things has catapulted Kate Bush’s 1985 “Running Up That Hill” song. When I heard it in Season 4 I thought, Just like Max, that used to be my theme song! So, needless to say, it made me very sympathetic to the character.

I thought I had written a post with the song in it, but I hadn’t. So I looked at my YouTube history and it shows I was obsessed with that song in July 2019. I don’t know what was going on in my life, other than I was in school for occupational therapy assistant, and it was somehow helping me.

Anyway, here’s the music video:

And I particularly enjoy this cover (maybe even more than the original):

      1. Right now, Criminal Minds. It’s OK, I guess. And I’m hoping that my older daughter will watch Squid Game with me soon, that will be a rewatch for me. My older daughter will appreciate the excellent writing, we watched Breaking Bad together some years back, and that was really fun. (My younger daughter definitely should not watch Squid Game at all, because she already has enough anxiety problems.)

        I’ve loved Stranger Things so far, it’s kind of a love letter to the 80’s in general and 80’s movies specifically. I went to college in the early 80’s, so that’s really my era.

About Quixie

Hi! I go by "Quixie." Quixie is a shortened version of "quixotic," which means: "exceedingly idealistic; unrealistic and impractical." It's how I described my evangelical Christian faith when I started blogging 7 years ago. Now I'm an agnostic atheist who is trying to find a balance between idealism and reality. I write about my mental health journey with bipolar disorder, my loss of faith (deconversion), parenting teens, reading, exercise/health, work-life, and my marriage separation/divorce.
