Back in the 1980s, a friend of mine, Diana, loaned me a 90 minute cassette she had made of a couple of Kate Bush albums.
This was at a period of time that I did a lot of bicycle riding in Sacramento. I had a car but it wasn’t working well, so anything that didn’t require good clothes or carrying bags, I’d ride my bike.
Kate Bush was the soundtrack of my bike riding. I played that cassette constantly. I became a Kate Bush fanatic. I bought the CDs, actually watched her concert films.
Of her earlier stuff, “Breathing” was the one I would replay most. It was over the top and had a great hook and then when you saw the video you realized just how over the top it really was.
I know Kate Bush isn’t for everyone. I just don’t know why.
