This is based on the 1968 Francois Truffaut film The Bride Wore Black, starring Jeanne Moreau as a widow who seeks revenge against the men who murdered her husband on her wedding day. Bush told Record Mirror in 1981: "Revenge is a terrible power, and the idea is to show that it's so strong that even at such a tragic time it's all she can think about. I find the whole aggression of human beings fascinating - how we are suddenly whipped up to such an extent that we can't see anything except that."
This premiered on the Kate Bush Christmas Special in 1979.
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
