Cloudbusting -- Kate
Bush In Her Own Words
It's interesting that your first favorite record is a Beatles
number. Why do you like that so much?
- Well that particular song I think is an absolute classic. I think
it's brilliant. And the particular cover version, Bryan Ferry, I think is one
of the best cover versions I've ever heard. Because so often it's just nowhere
as good as the original song and I think it's brilliant.
We should play it. It's ``she's leaving home.'' [Bryan Ferry's
cover of ``she's leaving home'' is played] yeah, it's a beautiful song
- Incredible, I think.
Has it any personal sorta meaning to you? You haven't left home
- [Laughs] no, no. It's nothing personal, it's just whenever...
I mean that whole album Sergeant Pepper is just a phenomena. It's
an absolute classic and all the songs on it are so beautiful. And it's just
good to hear a very, very excellent cover version because often they lack
something. I think he's captured george martin, The Beatles, everything. I
think it's very clever. (1979, personal call)
If you could a duet... If you would want to... Would you want to do
a duet with anybody?
- Yes, I mean, there are lots of people.
Name a few.
- Well I think the trouble with those kinds of questions is as soon
you're put them, all these names just disappear from your brain. But
definitely, I mean there are people I admire tremendously. Like I'd loved to
work with Bryan Ferry, his voice is superb. And, well Peter Gabriel, it was a
great honor working with him, I'd love to work with him, again. And all the
other names totally escape me, at the moment. [Both laugh] Yeah. (1985,
