  • Lyrics
  • Bush wrote this song for her dance teacher Lindsay Kemp. It's about how a person discovers free expression.
  • The inspiration for this song came also from whales. Kate thought that they were graceful and sang beautifully. Whale song is heard at the opening of the track.
  • While "Wuthering Heights" was the first single from Bush's debut album in the UK and most of the world, this song was the first released in Japan and reached #1 in that country. Oddly enough,it did not chart anywhere else. >>

  • Jeffrey from Rosemead, CaYes Mr Overveen, I agree. I had Nirvana's debut as the best until I finally heard this one for the first time in 2011. It moved me...
  • Sandra from Durham, United KingdomI took this album from my sister when I was 8 years old. I'm now 40 and I still listen to it and love it.
  • Erick Overveen from Amsterdam, NetherlandsI think this is what heaven must look & sound like. The opening track from by far the greatest 'DEBUT' album in the history of popular music. Anyone agree ?

  • Ivan from Dallas, TxIt's a great song. I first heard it in 1978 in HongKong. I especially like her piano playing and the drumming. I bought the album (vinyl) "The Kick Inside" too, and it's fantastic.
