Like I wrote yesterday, I’ve started simply running the “famous” Kate Bush cover versions that everyone knows, because I need to cut down on my YouTube surfing in search of Kate Bush covers. Actually, though, I’m not that sure if this qualifies as a famous cover. I thought everyone knew this one, but maybe I […]
I’ve had a crappy day, so I need some ukelele music to cheer me up. And so do you. Commercial release of this was actually pre-empted by EMI in 2003 or thereabouts, because they were expecting a new Kate Bush album really, really soon. Don’t see why they bothered.
So I was looking for a cover of ‘The Man With The Child In His Eyes’ by a proggy trio from the Netherlands that I’d seen at around the time I featured Danni Green’s version, and I found this live recording from 1989, by a bona fide hitmaking pop group from the era, Hue and […]

Now this is a lot more interesting! The intro of Danni Green’s version of ‘The Man With The Child In His Eyes’ suggests that it is about to explode into a light techno version, perhaps similar to Opus III’s cover of King Crimson’s ‘I Talk To The Wind’ (which I haven’t heard in ages, by […]
To be honest, I don’t really like what Brazilian Power/Sympho Metal band Angra have done with Wuthering Heights”: It’s technically all very well and the singer does a decent job, but to do the job, he has to use a rather unattractive falsetto register. What’s worse is that it doesn’t add anything to the original. […]
