Didn't see this coming. 15 nights at Hammersmith Apollo in August/September - her first gigs since 1979

Anyone want to buy my house/children/wife/internal organs so I can get a ticket?

Every mention I've seen about this so far is from a bloke . I loathe that dreary song.

I'm not a bloke and I adore Kate Bush. I also love that song assuming you mean wuthering heights.

That's a little drastic. Have you thought of Crowd funding?

It just amused me to see several mentions of it in quick succession, all from blokes. I know loads of people male and female love Wuthering Heights, but it does nothing for me. Like Every Breath You Take, by Police which is incredibly popular, but it's always given me the creeps. Different tastes

I must say the stalky Police song is more than a little creepy. My Mum also loaths Kate Bush so you are not alone

I also happen to know Jamanda dislikes U2, whom I also love. Wouldn't life be rubbish if we all liked the same thing.
Personally I find that needy self absorbed fictional (and sometimes non fictional) characters make my teeth itch.
Ally McBeal, Bridget Jones.....gah!

I'm with Jamanda on that. U2 are hideoderous. I liked the Police at the time but now I really don't like them, no I don't.

You haven't mentioned anyone I like yet LOL. Afraid I much more of either a folk style or rock person. Love music with good guitar work.

I love folk too, but Kate Bush is a bit special.

ps - Isn't 'Every Breath You Take' supposed to be creepy?

pps - re 'Wuthering Heights' - other songs are available

Having seen her picture on the BBC website today, not that I need any reminding of it, but it makes me realize that we're all getting older and that I haven't got a 'Hounds of Love' chance of 'Running up that Hill'

Wuthering Heights is a great book and a great song in my opinion. The Police I can take or leave but Bono? Yeuch!

Bono's a pretentious pr1ck...end of

808 State did a brilliant thing with "Cloudbusting" if memory serves

KB must be a bit crusty now, what with being a veggie and all

Me too
I'd love to go and see her live but don't think I could justify it

I also think Noel Fielding does a rather good interpretation of that song

I don't like U2 either!
