about the song
This song is a mash up between Kate Bush’s momentous 1985 song ‘Running up that Hill’ and ‘Runnin’ (Lose It All)’ by Naughy Boy ft. Beyonce, written 30 years later. We’re delighted that Livia Harris, one of our Heads of Music, has arranged it specially for the secondary choir’s performance at the Royal Albert Hall. Both songs are energetically driven and will lift the roof off the RAH – we hope!
things to think about when learning the song
- There’s a typo in the score – please teach your singers ‘that road’ (and not ‘the road’)
- Try and breathe in the rests, or at the end of phrases only
- If the changed part is too low in bars 70-77 and 83-85, sing this up an octave
- Sing ‘wanna’ rather than ‘want to’
