it at the age of 18 and the gem made her an instant star.

scored #1 in Australia, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand and Portugal.

Pitchfork named it the 5th best song of the 70s,

KATE BUSH Looking Back At 2022

KATE BUSH shared a Xmas message and
some 2022 thoughts on her social media.

About the UKRAINE war and the QUEEN.

“It’s a bombardment. The horrific war in Ukraine, the famines, the droughts, the floods
and we lost our Queen. Many of my friends were surprised at how upset they were at her
death especially as we aren’t royalists, but I think her passing became a focus for grief,
for unexpressed loss that so many people had felt during the pandemic.”

“Every year seems to fly by a little faster. They say this happens as you get older,
but there’s no doubt that the speed of life is accelerating at a greater rate than ever.

About RUNNING UP THAT HILL being a hit again this past summer.

“It’s been a crazy, roller coaster year for me. I still reel from the success of RUTH, being the No 1 track of this summer,” Bush continued. “What an honour! It was really exciting to see it doing so well globally, but especially here in the UK and Australia; and also to see it making it all the way to No 3 in the US. It was such a great feeling to see so many of the younger generation enjoying the song. It seems that quite a lot of them thought I was a new artist! I love that!”

KATE BUSH – Her 4th Album ‘THE DREAMING’ Is 40

Back in time

15 September 2022

Born Catherine Bush in Kent, UK 64 years ago
Active: Since 1975 / 10 studio LPs

Anniversary LP: THE DREAMING
Released: 13 September 1982 – 40 years ago

AllMusic: “Four albums into her burgeoning career, Kate Bush’s The Dreaming is a theatrical and abstract piece of work, as well as Bush’s first effort in the production seat. She throws herself in head first, incorporating various vocal loops, sometimes campy, but always romantic and inquisitive of emotion. She’s angry and pensive throughout the entire album, typically poetic while pushing around the notions of a male-dominated world. The Dreaming is one of Kate Bush’s underrated achievements in depicting her own visions of love, relationships, and role play, not to mention a brilliant predecessor to the charming beauty of 1985’s Hounds of Love.”

Singles/clips: Sat In Your lap / The Dreaming / There Goes A Tenner

Christmas Message From KATE BUSH

25 December 2021

With nearly two years of Covid, are any of us the same people
we were before? It’s left everyone confused and uncertain of the future.

It’s been a terrible time of loss for so many. I want to say a big thank you to all the people on the front line and in the NHS. I have such huge respect for all the nurses and doctors who’ve already been working flat out for nearly two years. These caring people are showing such extraordinary acts of kindness to others. Let’s hope they get the pay rises they rightly deserve.

I’d like to mention something that happened a few weeks ago on a walk; stopping to look
at the view, I noticed something moving in a tree right beside me. It was a Goldcrest – the smallest bird in Europe, even smaller than a wren. I stood still, hoping not to frighten it away.

Its colouring is beautiful – a peacock’s eye on each wing and a striking yellow streak on its tiny head. This gorgeous little ball of fluff flew away after ten minutes or so. I’ve only ever seen one once before and very briefly. It made my day. In these strange times, I really hope you can get the chance to stop for a moment and feel nature around you.

Please stay safe. Wishing you a restful Christmas
and hoping 2022 is a happier year for everyone.

With love”
