Top Of The Pops is the exquisite Kate Bush, with her new single,
Wuthering Heights. # Out on the wily, windy moors # We’d roll and fall # In green # You had a temper like my jealousy # Too hot, too greedy # How could you leave me # When I needed to possess you? # I hated you, I loved you, too # Bad dreams in the night # They told me I was
going to lose the fight # Leave behind my Wuthering # Wuthering, Wuthering Heights # Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy
Come home # I’m so cold # Let me in your window # Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy # Come home, I’m so cold # Let me in your window # Ooh, it gets dark! # It gets lonely # On the other side from you # I pine a lot # I find the lot # Falls through without you # I’m coming back, love # Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream, # My only master # Too long I roam in the night # I’m coming back to his side
To put it right # I’m coming home
to Wuthering, Wuthering # Wuthering Heights # Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy # Come home, I’m so cold! # Let me in your window # Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy # Come home, I’m so cold! # Let me in your window # Ooh, let me have it # Let me grab your soul away # Ooh, let me have it # Let me grab your soul away # You know it’s me, Cathy # Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy # Come home, I’m so cold! # Let me in your window # Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy # Come home, I’m so cold! # Them Heavy People,

shining out of her eyes # Emma’s been run out on # She’s breaking down
in so many places # Stuck in low gear # Because of her fears # Of the skidding wheels # The skid of her wheels she feels # Skidding wheels # The skid of her wheels she feels # Spinning wheels # Wheel-skidding feeling # Her heart is there # But they’ve greased the road # Her heart is out there # But she’s no control # Oh, come on
You’ve got to use your flow # You know what it’s like # And you know you want to go # Don’t drive too slowly # Don’t put your blues
where your shoes should be # Don’t put your foot
on the heartbreak # She’s losing that inner flame # It was burning bright # But she’s losing the light fast # She’s only herself to blame # Well, take care of yourself # And remember Georgie # But she’s so OD’d on weeping # She can hardly see # That she’s dropping beads # Red, red glass is bleeding # Dropping beads # Red, red glass is bleeding # Dropping beads # Red, red on the parquet # Her heart is there # But they’ve greased the road # Her heart is out there # But she’s no control # Oh, come on
You’ve got to use your flow # You know what it’s like # And you know you want to go # Don’t drive too slowly # Don’t put your blues
where your shoes should be # Don’t put your foot

You’ve got to use your flow # You know what it’s like # And you know you want to go # Don’t drive too slowly # Don’t put your blues
where your shoes should be # Don’t put your foot
on the heartbreak. # APPLAUSE And now…

Kate Bush! APPLAUSE AND CHEERING Emily… # We’re all alone on the stage # Tonight # We’ve been told # We’re not afraid of you # We know all our lines so well

it won’t last for ever” # And here I am again, my girl # Wondering what on Earth
I’m doing here # Maybe he doesn’t love me # I just took a trip

child in his eyes # Ooooooh. # APPLAUSE # Babooshka # Babooshka # Babooshka # She wanted to test her husband # She knew exactly what to do # A pseudonym to fool him # She couldn’t have made a worse move # She sent him scented letters # And he received them
with a strange delight # Just like his wife # But how she was before the tears # And how she was
before the years flew by # And how she was
when she was beautiful # She signed the letter “All yours” # Babooshka, Babooshka,
Babooshka-ya-ya # All yours, Babooshka,
Babooshka, Babooshka-ya-ya # She wanted to take it further # So she arranged a place to go # To see if he would fall
for her incognito # And when he laid eyes on her # He got the feeling # They had met before # Uncanny how she # Reminds him of his little lady # Capacity to give him all he needs # Just like his wife
before she freezed on him # Just like his wife
when she was beautiful # He shouted out # I’m all yours # Babooshka, Babooshka,
Babooshka-ya-ya # All yours # Babooshka, Babooshka,

of her bestselling LP, in the studio at number 18, Kate Bush with the Hounds Of Love. ‘It’s in the trees! It’s coming!’ # When I was a child # Running in the night # Afraid of what might be # Hiding in the dark # Hiding in the street # And of what was following me # The hounds of love are hunting # I’ve always been a coward # And I don’t know what’s good for me # Here I go # It’s coming for me
through the trees # Help me, someone # Help me, please # Take my shoes off # And throw them in the lake # And I’ll be # Two steps on the water # I found a fox # Caught by dogs # He let me take him in my hands # His little heart
It beats so fast # And I’m ashamed of running away # From nothing real # I just can’t deal with this # I’m still afraid to be there # Among your hounds of love # And feel your arms surround me # I’ve always been a coward # And never know what’s good for me # Oh, here I go # Don’t let me go # Hold me down # It’s coming for me
through the trees # Help me, darling # Help me, please # And take my shoes off # And throw them in the lake # And I’ll be # Two steps on the water # I don’t know what’s good for me # I don’t know what’s good for me # I need your love, love, love,
love, love, yeah # Yeah, your, yeah, your # Your love # Take your shoes off # And throw them in the lake # Do you know what I really need # Do you know what I really need # I need love, love, love,
love, love, yeah. # APPLAUSE # We were working secretly # For the military # Our experiment in sound
is nearly ready to begin # We only know in theory
What we are doing # Music made for pleasure # Music made to thrill # It was music
We were making here until # They told us all they wanted # Was a sound that
Could kill someone # From a distance so we go ahead # And the meters are over in red # It’s a mistake in the making # From the painful cries of mothers # To the terrifying scream # We recorded it
And put it into our machine # Then they told us all they wanted # Was a sound that
Could kill someone # From a distance so we go ahead # And the meters are over in red # It’s a mistake in the making # It could feel like falling in love # It could feel so bad # But it could feel so good # It could sing you to sleep… # WHISPERING: I bet my mum’s going
to give me a little toy instrument. # But that dream is your enemy ECHOING LAUGHTER AND CHATTER # We won’t be there to be blamed # We won’t be there to snitch # I just pray that someone there
Can hit the switch # But they told us all they wanted # Was a sound that
Could kill someone # From a distance so we go ahead # And the meters are over in red # It’s a mistake we’ve made # Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm… # And the public are warned
To stay off… # HELICOPTER WHIRRS APPLAUSE Kate Bush is back, she’s in at 12
this week with The Sensual World. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE # Then I’d taken the kiss of
Seedcake back from his mouth # Going deep South, go down… # Mmm, yes # Took six big wheels
And rolled our bodies # Off of Howth Head
And into the flesh # Mmm, yes # He said I was a flower
Of the mountain, yes # But now I’ve powers
o’er a woman’s body… # Yes # Stepping out… # Of the page… # Into the sensual world # Stepping out… # To where the water
and the Earth caress # And the down of a peach says… # Mmm, yes # Do I look for those millionaires # Like a Machiavellian girl would # When I could wear… # A sunset? # Mmm, yes # And how we’d wished
to live in the sensual world # You don’t need words # Just one kiss, then another # Stepping out of the page # Into the sensual world # Stepping out, off the page # Into the sensual world # And then our arrows of desire
rewrite the speech # Mmm, yes # And then he whispered, “Would I?” # Mmm, yes # Be safe # Mmm, yes # From mountain flowers # And at first with the charm
around him # Mmm, yes # He loosened it so if it slipped
between my breasts # He’d rescue it # Mmm, yes # And his spark took life in my hand # And # Mmm, yes # I said # Mmm, yes # But not yet # Mmm, yes # Mmm, yes. # APPLAUSE The talented songwriter-singer whose
quality has stood the test of time, from her platinum album

  2. Kate Bush …. A true one-off !
    Once heard a conversation comparing Florence to her …. " Not even close to this woman ? "

  3. Thank you for this compilation of BBC Videos. Material that you just cant find easily, fantastic.

  4. Thank you for this compilation of BBC Videos. Material that you just cant find easily, fantastic.
    one and only beautiful genie
    Awesome.
    one and only beautiful genie
    Awesome.
    Awesome.

  5. It's always astonishing to watch a progression of Kate over the years from the 70s to the 90s. When I first saw her in 1978 i thought that she was perfect both inside and out. I couldn't imagine her getting any better. I was wrong. As the years went on, she became more and more beautiful, and more and more interesting. Her beauty, coupled with her Genius, is literally unreal.

  6. Even Ms Bush cannot make Rocket Man into a tolerable song. Elton John destroys everything he touches…and he's not even unlikable!

  7. hammer horror wasn't inspired by the films… 'tis the story of an understudy for the Hunchback of Notre Dam who got his big 'chance' when the lead was killed, and the song is the tale of his dealing and paranoia/unease that may come with, I'm assuming, the strangeness of the conflicted feelings of being glad that the part is now theirs, but also the grief that a friend has also died. .. haha. A really underrated song in my view, think her voice was really transforming into its full strength, which you can hear in the chorus of this song…

    an ode to Kate! Incredible woman supreme 😀 Nobody writes and deals with story as she does.

  8. I used to sit and watch her as a child in front of the t.v she always mesmerised me as a kid I found her good but also weird with how she acted

  9. i'm a new fan, i'm only 17 and I LOVE HER. she's literally what i've been needing in music. sad she kinda stopped performing 🙁
    i can't believe she was only two years older than me here, or like one since i turn 18 in a few months. singers nowadays better step up their game. oh gosh. kate bush is mesmerizing.

  10. Experiment IV. Live. Even 30+ years later, this is an amazing show … The voice is unmatched, her music one of those underrated in terms of chart position, but her legacy remains..
