Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words
This section is organized chronologically by order of release. Where a song is included on both an album and a single the quotes are listed under the entry for the album. Each album entry is followed by Kate's comments about the album in general. Following that are the entries for each song. Note that I have not in cluded lyrics, credits, catalog numbers, Non-British releases, EPs, or informati on on picture disks. Those interested in that information are directed to the music book Kate Bush Complete or The Garden. It is highly recommend ed that you read the lyrics to Kate's songs along with this Part and that you al so look at the credits, since Kate often talks about the musicians she works with. Also note that I have not included information on non-official releases.
Of course there is much overlap between this and Part II - The Story, and Kate's music and life are so inter-related. In general, all the quotes about the meaning of the songs, albums, and videos are included here, as well as quotes on the making of the songs, albums, and videos. Part II has the quotes on the live and television performances, chart positions, and quotes given before an album is finished.
Each song entry is generally ordered to focus first on the meaning and inspiration for the lyrics of the song, then on the music itself, and then on the video (if any).
But, as long as people are getting enjoyment out of them, I don't think it matters to me. It doesn't worry me if they don't understand the way that I'd hoped they would. But of course it's always nice if they do.''
- Kate Bush (1983, Voc'l)
