Kate Bush

Uncategorized

Kate Bush has been a favourite artist of mine since she released “Wuthering Heights” back in 1978.  Commanding one of the most expressive voices in music, she was discovered in 1976 by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd fame.  She’s still active in the music business though somewhat of a recluse.  Sadly, we’ll probably have to make do with some of the most inventive music videos ever created.

In 1985, “Hounds of Love” was released with the beautiful “Running Up That Hill” showcasing Kate’s vocal as well as dance skills.

 

Here’s the same song featuring David Gilmour.

 

 

Bush’s songs told stories and her videos brought these stories to life.  “Cloudbusting” features Donald Sutherland in a cautionary tale of governmental abuse of power.

 

 

Kate Bush, an original in every way.
