monday singles suspended in gaffa

so it seems that I got my information confused about what the b side was.  i don't have the single in front of me, so it's difficult to verify.  anyway, this is a terrific song.

try not to get hooked in.  I dare you.


out in the garden there's half of a heaven
And we're only bluffing, we're not ones for busting through walls
But they've told us unless we can prove
That we're doing it, we can't have it all

He's gonna wangle a way to get out of it
She's an excuse and a witness who'll talk when he's called
But they've told us unless we can prove
That we're doing it, we can't have it all, we can't have it all

I caught a glimpse of a God, all shining and bright

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud, it all goes slo-mo
I don't know why I'm crying, am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not till I'm ready for you, not till I'm ready for you
Can I have it all?

I try to get nearer but as it gets clearer
There's something appears in the way
It's a plank in me eye with a camel
Who's trying to get through it
Am I doing it? Can I have it all now?

I pull out the plank and say, "Thank you for yanking me
Back to the fact that there's always something to distract"
But sometimes it's hard to know if I'm doing it right
Can I have it all now? Can I have it all now?
Can I have it now? I can't have it all

We all have a dream, maybe

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud, it all goes slo-mo
I don't know why I'm crying, am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not till I'm ready for you, not till I'm ready for you
Can I have it all?

I won't open boxes that I am told not to
I'm not a Pandora, I'm much more like
That girl in the mirror between you and me
She don't stand a chance of getting anywhere at all
Not anywhere at all, no not a thing, she can't have it all

Mother, where are the angels?
I'm scared of the changes

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud, it all goes slo-mo
I don't know why I'm crying, am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not till I'm ready for you, not till I'm ready for you

Suddenly my feet are feet of mud, it all goes slo-mo
I don't know why I'm crying, am I suspended in Gaffa?
Not till I'm ready for you, not till I'm ready for you
Can I have it all now?


here's a cover.  to me, the cover is too close and it's like, what's the point.  what do you think?

Dear Kate,

I am sick today, therefore I am loopy.

monday singles The Dreaming. kate's tenth single

The Dreaming.  The first single off of the Dreaming LP.

This album is where I started.  I hadn't heard of Kate before this point.  This album blew my shit away.  especially Night of the Swallow.





 Kate's dancing in this is beautiful.  This Album scared people to death.

I remember reading a review in Rolling Stone that something like, "this album is as if you wallpapered every room in your house paisley."    I was trying to find the review, but I can't.    It is my favorite of all of her albums.    I guess that you like where you started.

Kate Bush - Wow - Easter special in Lysin, Switzerland

I have never seen this one  either.  it is almost uncomfortable to me to watch this.  I can't imagine that she was happy about lip syncing this.

kate bush singles - 9th single - sat in your lap

a side "sat in your lap"
b side "lord of the reed river".

"Sat in Your Lap" is a song by the British singer Kate Bush. It was the first single to be released from her fourth album The Dreaming, though it was issued 15 months prior to the album which was nowhere near completion at that time. The single peaked at no.11 in the UK Singles Chart.- from wikipedia.

I see the people working,
And see it working for them.
And so I want to join in,
But then I find it hurts me.

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.
Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.

I see the people happy,
So can it happen for me?
'Cause when I am unhappy,
There's nothing that can move me.

Some say that knowledge is something that you never have.
Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.
Some say that heaven is hell.
Some say that hell is heaven.

I must admit, just when I think I'm king,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think I'm king,
(I just begin.)

I've been doing it for years.
My goal is moving near.
It says, "Look! I'm over here."
Then it up and disappears.

Some say that knowledge is something sat in your lap.
Some say that knowledge is ho-ho-ho-ho.

I want to be a lawyer.
I want to be a scholar.
But I really can't be bothered.
Ooh, just gimme it quick, gimme it, gimme gimme gimme gimme!

Some say that knowledge is ho ho ho.
Some say that knowledge is ho ho ho.
Some say that heaven is hell.
Some say that hell is heaven.

I must admit, just when I think I'm king,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think I'm king, I must admit,
(I just begin.)
Just when I think everything's going great,
(I just begin,)
Hey, I get the break,
Hey, I'm gonna take it all--
(I just begin.)
When I'm king--
(-- just begin.)

In my dome of ivory,
A home of activity,
I want the answers quickly,
But I don't have no energy.

I hold a cup of wisdom,
But there is nothing within.
My cup, she never overfloweth,
And 'tis I that moan- and groaneth.

Some grey and white matter,
"Give me the karma, mama!"
I'm coming up the ladder,
"A jet to Mecca,"
I'm coming up the ladder,
"Tibet or Jeddah,
Up the ladder...
"To Salisbury,
A monastery,
The longest journey,
Across the desert,
Across the weather,
Across the elements,
Across the water!"

Kate Bush on Looking Good, Feeling Fit

she's amazing.

Kate Bush Interview 1980

this may have been the first song by kate that I have heard. it's funny, I can remember the moment when I first heard her. in the back seat of a Bronco. Eric was driving. I said, "who is this?" it's amazing the first moment when you first here Kate. I think that the year was 1984.

I bought my niece "the kick inside." I am pretty sure that she tossed it in the corner. maybe one day she will go back to it.

friday letter...Guy Pierce loves Kates.


Guy Pearce is 'a lover of Kates'
Guy Pearce admits he loved working with Kate Winslet on the Depression-era drama Mildred Pierce because he has a bit of a crush on most Kates.
"It was extraordinary, I mean I've been in love with Kate Winslet for a long time, nearly as long as Kate Bush, not quite as long as my wife Kate - I've got a thing about Kates obviously!" the actor laughed, speaking at Bafta Los Angeles' annual tea party in Hollywood.
The Aussie actor said of working with Winslet: "Look, she's brilliant, she's very bright, she's very funny, she's down-to-earth, she's really up for a good time and really up for raising the standard whenever she can, so it was quite inspiring, I have to say."
The HBO mini-series, which comes out this year, is an adaptation of the novel which was also made into an Oscar-winning film in 1945, starring Joan Crawford.
The former Neighbours star says Kate didn't have an easy ride with the gruelling TV schedule.
"Poor Kate was pretty much in every shot of the show so she was running around like a mad woman trying to learn lines. I think it was really just about honouring her and trying to make sure she was comfortable at every moment because she had a lot to do," Guy revealed.
The 43-year-old wasn't kidding about his love of Kate Bush.
"Ahhh Kate Bush, still is in fact [my biggest crush] - it's her voice, how she looks, just the strange unique creature that she is!" Guy insisted.


Guy Pearce admits he's a fan of women called Kate



I love guy.   mmmm....

wednesday photo days

woo hoo!  http://www.katebushnews.com/ has linked me to their page.  so where ever you are from, Hello!!!




Kate is my hero.

I like this story.  maybe not true, but does show how Kate is seen.  on her terms...:

 Kate’s prolonged absence from the fold gave rise to a number of rumours. Perhaps the sweetest of these - literally as well as figuratively - was a story about a visit of some EMI executives to Kate’s country retreat. It’s claimed that the singer boldly announced, “Here’s what I’ve been working on,” before producing some cakes from her oven. In a 2005 interview, however, Kate denied this ever happened. “I don’t know where that came from. I thought that was quite funny actually. It presents me as this homely creature, which is all right, isn’t it?”
