    Predictable winner, but it really is her best song. It has been a great survivor and thank you CrazyCrazy for hosting! Whilst I've been a fan since I was a child, this countdown has been a great opportunity to explore aspects of her discography I was previously unfamiliar of such as Aerial which I now love.

    My Top 10 according to LastFM:

    1. Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)
    2. Hounds Of Love
    3. Cloudbusting
    4. The Big Sky
    5. Moving
    6. Wurthering Heights
    7. The Man With The Child In His Eyes
    8. And Dream Of Sheep
    9. Army Dreamers
    10. Sunset

    I don't know where Hello Earth is as it's probably my third favourite overall. For me Hounds Of Love, Aerial and The Kick Inside are her best albums.

    Thank you for those who stuck with me through this busy period, sorry for how long this took and hope some of you took something from it and let's thank Kate for the music!

    Lily is the least ruined. However, she sought out all the drive and energy from her originals. Deeper Understanding is especially painful to listen to in the ‚modern‘ version.
    For me Lily is amazing I love Kate's mature, lower voice. DU is ruined

    I love the new versions of NBM and Lily, specially the live BTD ones.

    I don’t really use Director’s Cut, I find it overall unnecessary. I only like Deeper Understanding, but I still prefer the original version.

    Funny how I've been a fan of hers for years, but Never Be Mine only became a fave maybe a year ago or so. The whole TSW album took a long time to grow on me, but now it's my fave Kate album.
    I love NBT 2014 much, much more than the original version TBH

    I couldn't do a ranking at all yet, I'd probably have all The Dreaming tracks in my top 10/20 though tbh I love that album to death!

    My vote is RUTH (an obvious winner but I've always liked it a bit more than HOL, however HOL is also a great song)

    A whole lotta love for Lily... great!

    Definitely a very instant song for me. Chorus-wise even the catchiest.

    Yawn top 2 (and most likely the winner), but oh well. They’re good songs so can’t say they aren’t deserving.

    My vote goes to HOL
