by Kate Bush
(222 plays) | (4 fans)

Bush wrote this with the title "Deal With God." Her label made her change it because they didn't think radio stations would play a song with "God" in the title. Bush still regrets letting them rename her song, but her previous album didn't do very well and she wanted to make sure this got airplay. Here's the official music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp43OdtAAkM

Fight For Life
by El Perro Del Mar
(11 plays) | (0 fans)

According to Swedish musician Sarah Assbring, the name El Perro del Mar came to her during an ill-fated vacation in Spain; she was alone, depressed, and out of sorts when a stray dog came up to her while she sat on the beach, and the dog's efforts to bond with her inspired her to express her feelings through songwriting.
