KT Cloudbusting -- Kate Bush In Her Own Words

Symphony In Blue


What is sung at the end of ``symphony in blue'' Is it: ``no wonder that I blew it''

Yes, but you've spelt it wrong: it's ``blue it."

I am fascinated by ``symphony in blue", and wonder if I am right in thinking that the musical inspiration was supplied not by gershwin, as the title implies, but rather by erik satie, and in particular the beautiful gymnopedies.

Yes, it was inspired by Erik Satie's Gymnopedies (II). [Sic - number two (of the three) is not the one that the kt band played in concert and on the kate special, but all three are very similar. - ied] (1984, KBC 17)
