Music with a hill reference in the title....

Here's a few to get us started... oh and can we miss out any reference to the Sound of Music until we've exhausted all other possibilities?
1. Running up the Hill - Kate Bush
2. Misty Mountain Hop - Led Zeppelin
3. Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
4. There is a green hill far away - ?????? just remember singing it at school years ago
5. Land of the Mountain and the Flood - Hamish McCunn (absolutely brilliant btw)
Told you my musical taste was ecclectic
Ok, what else is there out there that i don't know about? Over to you

The famous fats Domino song Blueberry Hill and Peter Gabriel's Solsbury Hill. From my (Sonic) Youth - Chapel Hill. Led Zep also have Over the Hills and Far Away. The Doors made a little known song called The Hill Dwellers.
Oh and Primrose Hill by Madness.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head Sorry, music geek

Hills of the North Rejoice
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills (Psalm 121)
I used to go a wandering along the mountain track (actually, I think this is called The Happy Wanderer)
Shows you how long ago my school days were.

Superior sleeve art: pictures of trucks transporting a fair parked somewhere in the highlands.
Neil Young: Sugar Mountain. Melancholy, sing it to golden plovers.
The Metallica coversong 'The Small Hours' on their genius $ 5.98 EP Garage Days Revisited (1988) has a really heavy line that runs 'Steep is the mountain which we climb'. Love that too.

Kudos to Klaasloopt for mentioning Teenage Fanclub as they're one of my favourite bands
