“Heathcliff, it’s me…” (Kate Bush, ‘Wuthering Heights,’ 1978)
There’s at least two amazing things to note about Kate Bush and our Music for Monday selection. Number One: “Wuthering Heights” was Bush’s (self-penned) debut single and it hit #1 in the UK shortly after its release in January of 1978. Number Two: Bush was only 19-years-old at the time.
Enjoy the official music video for “Wuthering Heights” below and hit the following link to explore more about her debut L.P., The Kick Inside.
