Cloudbusting is exceptional, and carries extra weight for me. Several years ago when I had a gigging band, we went to see one of our fans perform at a tiny club in NYC not knowing what to expect. She sang and had a couple string players among other instruments, and out of nowhere performed Cloudbusting. I didn't think it could be done, but it was seriously beautiful. So good. Shortly after that show, she died unexpectedly. Wish I could replay that performance.Amazing artist, I remember taping an 8 X 10 photo of her on my wall. Cloudbusting was probably my favorite tune, among so many choices.
I’m with you on that. An excellent movie with very good acting. I hate Madonna with the heat of a thousand suns but I’ve always thought that was a really good song. I’m not sure how much credit should go to her or the production team but it’s exceptional nonetheless.Big fan of the film, at Close Range. The melody is used rather effectually throughout.
Absolutely zero vocal dynamics in the PT version. She seems to have one default setting that’s locked. Much like everything she’s ever done.I prefer Pat Benatar's version.
That whole album is outstanding. Kite, James And The Cold Gun,Them Heavy People, Oh To Be in Love (my fave)....so many great songs. But yeah, Man With The Child In His Eyes is a standout.Kate was born a genius, apparently. I was hooked from the first time I heard this, written when she was only 13 and recorded before her voice broke upward!
Still the best thing she ever did.
And as if he hadn't already done enough for the world of music, David Gilmour will always have my gratitude for giving Kate a gentle push to get her material out there.
