I guess that there is a lack of historical perspective here, so go back to the 80's with:
 
However, the rest of the tunes on Pat Benatar's albums give no suggestion of "clone" , so does this come down to the way the tunes are structured/arranged by KB that encourages other singers into adopting Bushisms in  covers?
 
WRT 'clone': suggest a careful read of a dictionary's definition  is called for, before employing such terms.

I am registering and posting this, simply because I had spent many hours and seperate days searching for this one track that I heard on the radio in passing that I actually thought was Kate Bush. - Coming here and looking around the net, it was no easy task to find what I wanted.

But I have.

Forgetting appearance, this does sound exactly like Kate Bush. This is it..

P.Scriptum: And as for Kate Bush's version of Rocket Man.. I found it to be spectacular!

I just had a look at that Kate Bush version of Rocket Man. Horrible! Really, really awful! What on earth was she thinking?

At first I was upset seeing some of my favourite artists described as clones, but this thread has turned into a goldmine.

And for the record: I think that Slartibartfast is quite right. Tori can!

I also love when she covers "Hearts" at the end of the Yes Medley. I wish she would record a full cover of that song!

:) i have to agree, and in the past year i have listened to a frakload of prog, none of those keyboardists come close to her, but piano is her life, i've seen shows where she'll sit in between a harpsichord , organ, and piano and play all three during the same song

'twas partially lighthearted and partially serious. No they don't sound alike, (hooray!) and the visuals are purely Revlon and a good camera. It relates to an article/interview I read in the 80s (that I haven't managed to trackdown the source for) that at first appeared to be lazy journalism (you know - two female singer/songwriters in a "man's world" thing), but by the time I'd finished reading it kind of made sense.

hmmm I would start with Shaday and explore from there:) and yeah 'temple of love' by sisters of mercy is one amazing song.

well i have  to voice my opinion here and speak on behalf of tori:) tori amos is my favorite musician, i have everything she's ever done ever - myra ellen emos, y kant tori read, every bootleg et cet.  i've seen her in concert every tour since i was 15 (32 now) she is my babe, as is kate bush, they are my two favorite singers ever.
when tori debuted wiith little earthquakes, she had a huge kate vibe and was getting compared to her ad nauseum, it wen't on to under the pink and boys for pele, even though they also didn't sound that kateish, but by chiorgirl she had started reinventing herself and imo since that album she hasn't sounded too kate-ish, with the exception of the song 'cooling' which is so 'this womans work' it's insane. but she has gone a completely different route with her music, it's still girl and a piano but i think she has a sound her own.  i think Kate is more intense and haunting, i always say tori is more like the spirit and kate goes right to my soul (yes im a dork)

i'm so happy i get to try out some new chicks too, i have joanna and florence.

also, how come nobody has mentioned Ofra Haza????

Indeed Amos is most similar to Bush's works, but Tori's works lack the multi-dimmensional facet of kate's music...
 
Kate's discography is quite varied, while staying focused on her typical herself... they're all fairly different while defintely soundinglike her... abit like pink Floyd being constantly reinventing themselves but ultimately being Floyd.
 
If you listen to a few of Tori's albums in a row, you'll hear the same three songs over and over album after album >>> she's one-dimensional (I still like most of her stuff, but no more than two songs in a row)
 
 
So i can't even vote her being the "best KB clone", coz she's only presenting one facet of KB
