Song of the day: Kate Bush- Cloudbusting

In 1985, Kate Bush released the album The Hounds Of Love, which would peak in the album charts. One of the singles, Cloudbusting, was inspired by a book, A Book Of Dreams, which Kate Bush had read. The song tells the story of the writer, Peter Reich, who would go and make rain with his father, using a cloudbuster (as seen on the photo). It would chart at number 20 in the UK, and number 11 in the Netherlands. Enjoy

Song of the day: Kate Bush- Wuthering Heights

I read the book Wuthering Heights in the last period of the past schoolyear (assignments are on the blog, too), and after I had my oral, I thought: well, let’s listen to the song by Kate Bush. And hearing the text, together with the music, send shivers down my spine. Why? I don’t know. It probably had to do with the understanding of the text (if you’ve read the book, you’ll understand what I mean) and the singing of Kate Bush. So for today, listen to:
