Running Up That Hill 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: 4:56
Under The Ivy Lyrics
What it's about: A girl sneaks away from a party for a clandestine meeting with her lover.
Running time: 2:11
The Japanese sleeve shown here features the same front and rear photos as the UK gatefold (with some additional Japanese writing), but it's a single pocket sleeve. Unlike most Japanese 7" releases, it is an actual sleeve, not just a photo insert. (Scan and information courtesy of Bart.)
The package includes an insert featuring the same photos as on the inside of the UK gatefold.
