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.
I'm a slightly off-beat Toronto-area teacher who enjoys writing and photography. I come from a family of collectors and now I'm dragging my own family around to yard sales. It's just a bit of fun. Enjoy the scenes.
My husband and I stock a booth rammed to the rafters with vintage treasures at Valley Antiques in charming Dundas, Ontario. It's a few kilometers west of Hamilton. Come visit this best kept secret in Southern Ontario and swing by Valley Antiques. There are over 50 vendors selling cool and beautiful things and you won't be paying Toronto prices (speaking as a former Hogtown gal).
