If the wordpress stats are anything to go by, you wonderful readers of my blog come from all over the world, including a fair few from America. Now, it has come to my attention that very few Americans have heard of Kate Bush. So, I have made it my new mission to rectify this tragic state of affairs. From now on, whenever someone mentions the fact that Kate Bush was cut from your version of the Olympic Ceremony, you will not respond with: ‘who?’ but with a public outcry.
Kate Bush is a musical genius. But don’t take my word for it, hear and see for yourself:

In fact, I’d recommend starting with Hounds of Love – it’s a great album and perhaps more accessible than some of her others.
In case you don’t have a good indie CD shop nearby or would prefer to buy it as an MP3 download, here’s a link for that:
You’re about to embark on a beautiful love affair. Enjoy!
