"Out On The Wily, Windy Moors".

 Yet another wind related song.  It's got to be that banshee/colleen from Croydon: Kate Bush.

I spend many an hour watching Kate from Hammersmith back in the late seventies or was it the eighties?  

Have any been lucky enough to see her live?

Kate was only 18 when she penned and sang and danced her Magnum Opus of a Rock Classic.

Any guesses?

  1. Yes. I have got a guess. Is it "Wuthering Heights"?

    1. Frayed Knot YP. You are close but it's actually Top Withens where Cathy and Heathcliffe resided and hiked to the Black Bull to have a pint and some Yorkshire Puddings with Branwell. Did you ever see Kate play live?

    2. No I never saw Ms Bush in concert but I have been to Top Withens three times. I find it weird how many middle aged and even more mature men are a little obsessed with Kate Bush.

    3. I have been there a few times myself YP. I once walked past a young Japanese lady who was reading Wuthering Heights whilst she hiked. K B is a female Rock icon. Amazing even.

  2. I used to sing along to that one.
    Not sure what the neighbours thought, though.

  3. We've all sung along and danced like a dervish or banshee to that one JayCee. I hope we didn't sound like Hilda Ogden when she was cleaning?

    1. I remember you saying before Traveller that you saw KB at Hammersmith. It must of been "Wow"?

  5. You have been doing your research Dave. I wouldn't have guessed that would be on your list to share. I had to study Wuthering Heights at school and would never have picked it for a story to inspire a rock anthem, but her song was like nothing else.

  6. I have walked the 5 or 6 miles from Haworth Parsonage to Top Withens TM. Where the ruins of an old smallholding still stands and is said to have been the inspiration for Wuthering Heights.

    I have also read the book. Pure Gothic fantasy that goes on even after death. A classic tale. Kate put the banshee into Rock music.

Texting Instead Of Talking.

 I have noticed people texting each other even when in the same room.  The younger generation are very good at it in fact. When we went to T...
