    Kate Bush bits and bobs

    A thread for our general thoughts and little mentions we see of Kate.

    I will begin: in this month's Q, Alison Goldfrapp lists her ten top Kate Bush songs for download (it's a feature about the "1001 songs" for an ultimate playlist.) Her choices:

    The Man With The Child In His Eyes
    The Big Sky
    Babooshka
    The Sensual World
    And Dream Of Sheep
    Running Up That Hill
    Wow
    Under Ice
    Sat In Your Lap
    Breathing

    Also, I saw The Line The Cross and The Curve for the first time today and really enjoyed it! Kate was in fine voice (and looked great too) in that era. I saw an interview with her in 1994 and she seemed disappointed with it even then but in my mind it's nothing to be embarrassed about at all.

    I am currently in the midst of my biggest Kate phase in about four or five years. That is all.

    (I have been listening to Kate in those years of course, but right now she's my most-played.)

    PJ Harvey has registered some new songs at BMI which got me looking at Kate's catalogue there, and I noticed an entry for "Babooshka 2009." Wonder what that's all about...

    ^ Babooshka 2009 is most likely the Miss Platnum version of Babooshka, however there are some other strange titles there, including Cake, Cry Out Loud, Meaning Of Lovers, Swell and To Love. Can one see when these titles have been registered?

    Brilliant cover version. I'm guessing they've had to register Babooshka 2009 as its formal title because she sings extra bits in Romanian(I think?) at the end making it an amended version rather than a straight cover. So presumably Kate (or her agent)'s approval was needed.

    Maybe the other oddities are song that sample bits of Kate songs as well?

    Thanks for posting that. He's interviewed in Under the Ivy and says pretty much the same thing. He must want/need the money.

    Here's a photo of the lyrics:

    I'm sure your letter was so nice that Lisa made it a point to show it to Kate.
