Running Up That Hill (Extended) Lyrics
What it's about: Gender differences, and how they hamper our ability to understand the opposite sex. The song suggests we should try to resolve the conflicts in our relationships by "swapping places" (looking at the situation from our partner's perspective).
Running time: 5:47
Under The Ivy Lyrics
What it's about: A girl sneaks away from a party for a clandestine meeting with her lover.
Running time: 2:06
Running Up That Hill (Instru-mental) running time: 5:00
The instrumental version of Running Up That Hill on this disc has never been issued in any other format. (See non-LP page for more info...)
The cover images are identical to the UK release, but the jacket is heavier stock and it has colored borders (gold on the front, grey on back).
Anybody know why they hyphenate the word "instru-mental" in Canada??
