This is all still so surreal
"Switched On Pop" did an episode on this:
what a glorious time.
Running Up That Hill...
It’s all so exciting! Since the last post, Running Up That Hill has gone to No 1 in Norway and Austria. This is such great news and we just heard today that it’s up from No 8 to No 4 in the US.
The track is being responded to in so many positive ways. I’ve never experienced anything quite like this before!
I just want to say a really big thank you to everyone in the US who has supported the song. It’s the first time I’ve had a top ten single over there and now it’s in the top 5!
Thank you so much again to the Duffer Brothers - because of their latest, extraordinary series of Stranger Things, the track is being discovered by a whole new audience.

The same with looking upward and touching her heart for ‘I’m cloudbusting Daddy!’ That song has never been the same since.A moment from Before The Dawn I forgot about came back to me earlier. During 'The Morning Fog' when she sung "I tell my mother" she put her hands by her heart then "I tell my father" she put her head down in respect. It felt like such a personal moment and ever since the song has been more emotional to listen to, for me.

Her 1st and last GH colllection is from 1986, 36 years ago. Quite ironic it’s called The Whole Story and it covers her first 5 albums. She has released 5 more, but she doesn’t seem to care. Maybe she’s waiting for a 40th anniversary to update it!
I know it takes some (vinyl) time to release a new GH, but she could definitely announce it, release the Stranger Things new edit now and a new track in October or November. She could even announce a tour!
But she doesn’t seem to care. Not the collection. Not the tour (she didn’t do many in the last 43 years: tour of life in 1979 (29 dates!) and a 22 date residency at the Apollo back in 2014. Full stop.
I have only 1 question: where does she get the money to live? She didn’t sell 20 million copies of one or two of her albums, she didn’t tour much, she doesn’t give her songs to advs…
