If you ever wondered what Watching You Without Me would sound like coming from the bottom of a lift shaft slowed down a little then this would be for you
(it's rather good)

Vaporwave Kate, just repeated loops - but so good

Music/photos/interviews/videos/whatever.

My favourite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XR4KnfcgLm0

Also the song Mrs Bartolozzi.

The Hammer Horror video is the sexiest thing in music ever.

Image-wise nowt beats Kate Bush in a suit:



She's just lovely, isn't she? *Alan Partridge sigh*

Also Kate's rendition of Rocket Man is pretty good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pjn1sNUnGyY

I quite like the Big Sky video too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sV7w5TaYjRA

I'm not sure what the general consensus on 'The Line, the Cross and the Curve' is but it was the first Kate Bush thing I was obsessed with, I just think it's wonderful.

Just a quick heads-up that BBC 4 are showing the 1979 Christmas Special tonight at 1:15-2am - should also be available on iplayer for a while.

I remember a number from that called Them Heavy People, where the two male dancers backing Kate wore long overcoats and big hats.  I reckon that must have inspired the Miller Lite 'it ain't heavy' adverts of the late-80s.

Simon Price tweeted that he's written the article on Hounds Of Love that's in it.

That's not bad actually - similar 'special issues' tend to be priced at around £9.99.

It's probably this picture, within which you can just about see her bush.

This documentary. Or rather a bit of it that made me think "WOW!' I was in my very early teens at the time and frankly don't think that sort of thing should be screened at a time when adolescents could be watching.

(PS, it's not this particular bit. I just can't get it to copy from the start.

Cheers DAF. I did watch it a while back and must have stopped at that bit or scrolled it back for some reason I can't remember.

PS, I wasn't into her music at that time simply because a girl in my year who I thought was a bit of a snob was talking about how much she liked her between lessons one day. I was wrong on both counts. Kate is very good (musically, not just lookswise) and ****** was a really nice lass. I'm Facebook friends with her nowadays. ****** that is, not Kate.

I remember at school with the boys there was sort of Beatles/ Stones type rivalry. Who did you swear allegiance to? Kate Bush or Debbie Harry. Or really who did you most fancy? We can thank their respective management promotion teams and Scandecor poster company for that.

Never really had that at my place. Which is just as well as I liked both.

Even though the standard version of the 'Wuthering Heights' video evokes nostalgia with it's hazy of-it's-time-ness, the alternative version is preferable for it's beautiful location and Bush acting all vampish in a red dress. Ah, halcyon, hopeful days.

My favourite Kate Bush thing is searching 'Wuthering Heights Day' on YouTube:

De Efteling special - 12 May 1978

Quote
On 12 May 1978, the Dutch broadcaster TROS broadcast a 20 minute Kate Bush television special, recorded at the Dutch amusement park Efteling. On 10 May 1978, Efteling was ready to open the Haunted Castle, the most expensive attraction it had ever constructed, and they wanted to promote it as much as they could. Ton van der Ven, who designed the castle, appeared in a popular talk show and in April a documentary featuring the Haunted Castle was made by filmmaker Rien van Wijk, who was eager to shoot in the latest attraction before it officially opened. Kate, who just had a big hit with Wuthering Heights, was approached for a television special that would promote both Efteling and her songs. The special was filmed in April, a month before the official opening of the castle.

   

• "Moving" was filmed in the square in front of the Haunted Castle
• "Wuthering heights"; Kate can be seen inside the Haunted Castle. Among other things, a smoke machine was used.
• "Them heavy people" was filmed at 3 locations; in the attic of the castle, at the entrance with the oriental spirit and outside in front of the entrance of the well that is part of the attraction 'The Indian water lilies'.
• "The man with the child in his eyes" was filmed by the lake with gondolettes and swans
• "Strange Phenomena" has the double shot with the mirror image and was filmed in the castle's catacombs.
• "The Kick Inside". Kate has gray hair in this shot and is lying in a boat surrounded by flowers on the lake and sailing away. This scene conjures up images of Elaine and The Lady of Shalott, classic poetic figures from the Arthurian legend.

[Lighting designer] Bert Klos : "They were very heady days. There were so many different locations and I wanted to support the actions of Bush as well as possible with light. She was a short woman with a thin voice, but very professional. That woman couldn't be stopped, she just kept on going. When we wanted to sit down for a while, she already stood up and said: 'come on guys!'. I can even recall a soundman tripping across his own feet from sleep at 1am!"
