''During the gap between the last and this album, I'd seen quite a few videos on television, that other people had been doing. And I felt that dance was being used quite trivially, it was being exploited. So we felt how interesting it would be to make a very simple routine between two people, almost classic, and very simply filmed. So that's what we tried, really, to do a serious piece of dance.'' - Kate Bush
''I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman can't understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other's roles, if we could actually be in each other's place for a while, I think we'd both be very surprised! And I think it would lead to a greater understanding. - Kate Bush
''You see, for me it is still called "Deal With God", that was its title. But we were told that if we kept this title that it would not be played in any of the religious countries, Italy wouldn't play it, France wouldn't play it, and Australia wouldn't play it! Ireland wouldn't play it, and that generally we might get it blacked purely because it had God in the title.'' - Kate Bush

I always loved the boldness of Kate Bush's Songs, her music as well as her lyrics. Thank God, God is addressed in this song!

Ground breaking album and song. The pull and push of the percussion and the synthesizer matches the push and pull of the lyrics about trading places back and forth, Just pure genius. With the song building and building to a crescendo at the end awesome.
