Bush In Her Own Words
influence you're quoted before is Pink Floyd's The Wall, did you
see the film?
- Yes. I've been very much influenced by The Wall because
I like the way that the Floyd get right into that emotional area and work with
sounds as pictures. I think the problem with the film though is that, although
as a piece of art it is devastating, it isn't real enough. The whole film is
negatively based. No once during Pink's life is there a moment of happiness
which I know in every human's life there is. Even if you have the shittiest
life of all there is always one little moment where you smile for a second or
you fall in love with someone and feel happy - maybe only for ten minutes.
- In The Wall there is no compassion and no objectivity
at all and I actually think that certain areas of that are destructive. (1982,
