Song of the Week # 38 Kate Bush "Big Sky"

How do I love this song? Let me count the ways. I discovered the genius of Ms. Bush shortly before The Hounds of Love album came out. I remember lapping up the goodness of each single that was released. When "Big Sky" was released, MuchMusic played the video quite a bit. I remember being in Grade 9 at Leaside High School. Everyone was either preppy or Greek (not that I have anything against Greek people). I was neither. Anyway, I remember telling a girl how excited I was that "Big Sky" was on MuchMusic. She grumbled that the song and video were both stupid. I knew from that point on that we'd never be friends. "Go back to your Wham records," I must have thought to myself.
Anyway, here it is. Kate Bush's "Big Sky." This will start your week off right.


  1. Hello, I'm a bit confused but are you and Ms Hawkins the same person? I've been spending time deciding what to make for my 3 Pay it Forward pals and just wanted to make sure it is actually you and not one of the other people working on your group blogs!

  2. Hi, ignore above comment, just me being a bit thick today, I had thought it was you all along but got confused with you having a few blogs, just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about making something, just still coming up with ideas!!

  3. Where have you been...everyone ok?
