the world needs more artists like kate bush. Simply genius.
I liked her from the start. She's not only good, she is special in her singing and performance.
She was such a heavyweight of talent, when you recognize that, it is hard to figure others don't.
Here she is with the man.
The vocal on her revised release on her greatest hits album is FAR better than the original. Astounding.
She has one song where she brays like a donkey. So out of the box awesome.
And back in the day she was the hottest female in the universe. IMHO.
Great story, great lyrics, great performance.
I would love to be a fly on the wall when she’s working.
God, I love that song.
I've been a Kate fan since back in the day...Wuthering Heights is one of the most beautiful love songs ever written. Her work after The Red Shoes is less compelling to me, but the overall quality of her body of work is simply astounding. Were I to rate artists based on how many songs they've written that literally bring me to tears, I believe Kate would be # 1. To whit:
There is a great BBC documentary about her. Anyway, look it up. She is an amazing talent.
I think it is this one
Kate with David Gilmour on a Steinberger. I didn’t know until recently that David helped her with her first demo tape and getting her a record deal.
The solo at the end is pretty great...
She supposedly started writing original songs as young as 11!
Great, unique talent.
That's what I read as well - David G. had a mutual friend with the the Bush family; he helped Kate by recording demos and helping get her the record deal with EMI that set her up as a "future artist" at around 16, meaning that she had 2 years to deliver her first album. That gave her plenty of time to write; Wuthering Heights was actually one of the last songs written for her first album.
Second album - it's a good rendition as Pat has the pipes to do it justice; the arrangement she and Neil Giraldo came up with was of course less prog/more arena rock.
Almost as bad as the book.
She's an absolutely brilliant musician.
Her music is such that you remember what you were going through in your life at the time when you were first listening to it.
Saw a review of “The Kick Inside” when it was released, thought “this sounds interesting”, bought it, and was hooked. Utterly original, passionate, whip-smart, and...wait for it...completely rock and roll. I dearly hope she comes up for the RnRHoF again and gets in.
Here’s one of my favorite songs, more recent than most:
God, she’s great. Hounds of Love is one of my favorite albums of all time. It’s one of those records you put on to listen to in it’s entirety, and watch the room get dark as the sun descends. And then put it on again. Headphones are recommended.
Kate Bush is a genius. She's unlike anyone else and has stayed true to her vision. That's my impression.
This song gets me every time. I consider it one of the most beautiful and moving pieces of music ever written.
