    Posted: July 17 2013 at 00:03
I've never been part of a community that shared my love for Kate Bush's music. I would love to know which songs you appreciate the most. Mine are as follows:
1. Wuthering Heights
2. Jig of Life
3. Army Dreamers
4. Under the Ivy
5. And Dream of Sheep
6. the Sensual World
7. Nocturn
8. Night of the Swallow
9. Houdini
10. Running Up That Hill

Thank you for allowing me to post this.

This might end up being pushed to another forum such as General Music as she comes under 'prog related'. Anyway that aside count me as a fan and I know many others here share that enthusiasm. I will post a top ten later when I have a chance to give it a bit of thought.

I'm sure about my number one spot: Wuthering Heights. The original version, not the awful re-recording that appears on compilations.

-Breathing
-Hounds of Love
-This Woman's Work
-Aerial
-Rocket's Tail
-Babooshka
-Get Out of My House
-Never Be Mine
-A Coral Room
-Running Up That Hill

Top of the City is great but The Red Shoes sounds like it was mastered in a tin can. I could include all of The Sensual World or The Hounds of Love here and be more or less satisfied.

Picking Kate faves is always a nightmare for me, but I guess if I had to throw together a mix of songs for my own fancy on this fine summer day......it would be this...

In My Garden
Moving
Symphony in Blue
Hammer Horror
Moments of Pleasure
Snowflake
Wild Man
The Infant Kiss
In Search of Peter Pan
Night of the Swallow
