Although Kate Bush's original doesn't belong in this thread, the 1986 re-mix with new vocals for her The Whole Story greatest hits compilation surely does:



I actually prefer the re-mix. Not only are Kate's vocals more melodious (and less jarring), the guitar solo has been brought forward in the mix as well. I know, I know, the original cut may be more "artistic" because the song is after all about a crazed woman, but I try to avoid those myself.



Interesting that the book was part of my grade twelve English curriculum, and I somehow managed to get through it without realizing that it was fundamentally a romance! I thought it was a story of revenge, because that's the part which resonated with me. As a result, I was bitterly disappointed with the 1970 movie which was all about the romance. And it was the 1970 movie which so enthralled Kate Bush that she went on to read the book and then pen this song.

Almost forgot about that 80's remix and you're right , it is a better version.
