KT Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words



"Egypt'' an attempted audial animation of the romantic and realistic visions of a country. (1980, KBC 7)


The song is very much about someone who has not gone there thinking about Egypt, going: ``Oh, Egypt! It's so romantic...the pyramids!'' Then in the breaks, there's meant to be the reality of Egypt, the conflict. It's meant to be how blindly we see some things - ``Oh, what a beautiful world,'' you know, when there's shit and sewers all around you. (1980, Zigzag)
