    This is absolutely hilarious. I will admit that I used to do the dance and knew every word, as I wafted through the house. I was six though and didn’t really know that I looked like an eejit. This lot have no excuse!

    Great!

    I like the Ukes version of it too.

    That is awesome. Looked like fun. I'd have to let my red dress out a little to fit in it again.

    I have adored Kate Bush for almost 4 decades.


    Not this much.

    I detested her popularity, but loved her in my dreams. Ohh how I loved her.

    Synchronicity could use some attention.

    I was once dismissed from a class at school aged 11 for imitating Wuthering Heights, so this rings a bell! Funny. Thanks for posting.

    "Everybody loves Kate Bush" ? Statement does not hold true in my case. That whining, grating voice drove me mad!

    Check out Meg Myers' cover of Running up that Hill. That woman has some serious pipes and crazy eyes.

    sorry ... i must agree too . Never heard of her o_O
     
  18. Until this thread, i have never heard of Kate bush. Ive heard of Kate Smith, George Bush, Busch beer, Kate Hepburn, a bird in the hand beats two in the bush, and she caught me Katy , but not Kate bush. FWIW, i do know who George Washington and Elvis were.

    Jings! She's a legend! One of the most innovative female performers ever, she released Wuthering Heights in 1978, aged 17. She wrote it when she was 12, along with another masterpiece, called The Man with The Child in His Eyes.... David Gilmour discovered her and produced the demo, which ended up being the actual single, and it became a worldwide hit. She has had 12 albums since. Her unique vocals and dance style have made her great bait for impersonators... I have loved her forever... she's truly a one-off. But I'll be damned if I'm running around a park pretending to be her!
