Happy Birthday, Kate Bush!

Happy Birthday, Kate Bush!

One of my favourite musicians of all-time, Kate Bush, celebrates her 62nd birthday today!

I first started listening to the music of Kate Bush back in 1978 or 1979, with her first album, The Kick Inside (1978), a brilliant progressive rock album, with tracks such as "Wuthering Heights", "James and the Cold Gun", "Oh, To Be in Love", "Them Heavy People" (a track I adore), and the title track. I can't explain what it was about the album and her voice that made me fall for the singer and want to hear more of her work. The follow-up album, Lionheart (1978) (though I don't think I heard this album until a year later, being in Canada as I was), was...remarkable, superb, and even better than her first one. "Symphony in Blue", "In Search of Peter Pan", "Kashka From Baghdad", "Coffee Homeground" still resonate with me.

Anyway, I've been listening to Kate's music since she started, and am still a huge fan. I was also lucky enough to see her in concert back in the mid-1980s, and she is even better live. Enough already. To celebrate Kate's birthday, here's the video for one of my favourite tracks.



Here's wishing Kate Bush a very Happy Birthday! May she have a healthy, happy, prosperous, and blessed year ahead, and may a warm breeze always blow at her back.

Oh, and keep rollin' the ball! :)
