    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)

    My 10 faves would be:

    1. Never Be Mine

    (then the rest in alphabetical order, not in terms of liking them, as my preferences change a lot)

    A Coral Room
    And Dream of Sheep
    Army Dreamers
    Cloudbusting
    Deeper Understanding
    In Search of Peter Pan
    Suspended in Gaffa
    The Kick Inside
    This Woman's Work

    + honorable mentions (songs I also love and sometimes include in the top 10)

    There Goes a Tenner
    Breathing
    Wuthering Heights
    The Song of Solomon
    Mother Stands for Comfort

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

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

    I hate Director‘s Cut as it ruined all the songs.

    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

    Let's give this some closure now.



    OUR WINNER!

    RUNNING UP THAT HILL (A DEAL WITH GOD)



    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!

    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.
