Kate Bush

I bought KB's first 2 albums a few years ago. 'The Kick Inside' from 1978 is superb, not a single bad song on there. She recorded it in the summer of 1977 just before I was born. 

"Rolling the ball...." B|

'Lionheart' is OK but is apparently her least favourite iirc. A few decent tracks on there.

In my forays into alternative music, I quite liked Kate Bush. There's something captivating about her. The soundscapes and the insanity.

I mean - WTF is this about?

I can see Vera stood on one of those cliff-tops with this playing in the background at the end of one of her investigations.

I remember it was that Wednesday
Oh when it rained and it rained
They traipsed mud all over the house
It took hours and hours to scrub it out
All over the hall carpet
I took my mop and bucket
And I cleaned and I cleaned
The kitchen floor
Until it sparkled
Then I took my laundry basket
And put the linen all in it
And everything I could fit in it
And all our dirty clothes that hadn't gone into the wash
And all your shirts and jeans and things
And put them in the new washing machine
Washing machine
Washing machine
I watched them go 'round and 'round
My blouse wrapping itself in your trousers
Oh the waves are going out
My skirt floating up around my waist
As I wade out into the surf
Oh and the waves are coming in
Oh and the waves are going out
Oh and you're standing right behind me
Little fish swim between my legs
Oh and the waves are coming in
Oh and the waves are going out
Oh and the waves are coming in
Out of the corner of my eye
I think I see you standing outside
But it's just your shirt
Hanging on the washing line
Waving its arm as the wind blows by
And it looks so alive
Nice and white
Just like its climbed right out
Of my washing machine
Washing machine
Washing machine
Slooshy sloshy slooshy sloshy
Get that dirty shirty clean
Slooshy sloshy slooshy sloshy
Make those cuffs and collars gleam
Everything clean and shiny
Washing machine
Washing machine
Washing machine

Best wishes holiness. Is your prayer wheel going round better now, since I changed out those Chinese bearings for proper Swedish ones?

I always thought Kate Bush was a nice looker, if a bit small. She had a few advantages of knowing the right people, and a lot of backing, but most of the records were very good.

I'm now listening to 'Lionheart' album.

Whenever you bought a CD from Amazon a few years they would give you the MP3 download automatically. However they stopped that freebie when, I assume, they were forced to pay more corporation tax. However I purchased 'Kick Inside' album at the same time and oddly enough that one wasn't downloaded to Amazon Music. Quite odd.
