Put Your Hand Over the Side of the Boat, or: Fifty-Eight Today
The traditional High Egoslavian Holy Day post:
Hounds of Love has to be one of my three most listened to albums, and the song cycle of side two (back in the days of album sides, youngsters) unquestionably the one side of music I've listened to more than any other. Dream of Sheep and Under Ice and Waking the Witch and Watching You Without Me and Jig of Life and Hello Earth and finishing with, and you must listen in order like I just did for full kaboom, holyfuck, I love this song:
The line between loving the music and loving the memories the music evokes (and there are ten formative years and three exceptional women - one of whom I'm still married to) when Kate Bush was on the daily soundtrack has long blurred, but she is (has been for decades, since I first heard that voice) one of two permanent members in My Sillyass Desert Island Five Game for both reasons. Lordy, the rush when I first here her voice again after not hearing it for a week. Yes, I post this same post every year.
Requests at my solicitation last year from friends davidly, David, symptomatic & K. Thanks. CLICK for LOTS more songs.
