My friend Zan, who introduced me to Kate years and years ago, was in a Kate Bush cover band in middleshcool. :)


The Puppini Sister's version of WH is pretty entertaining. I like it. A bit kooky, but they're kinda like a modern version of The Andrews Sisters.

Thanks, I'll check that out :o)

I can thoroughly recommend Faith and the Muse's version of RutH
And can thoroughly condemn as ill concieved the blue pearl version of the same

Blue Pearl who did "Can you feel the passion"?

Thanks for the list! I'm tickled at the thought of Kiki and Herb doing Kate Bush songs.

I think I would avoid:

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain: "Wuthering Heights" (????)

Claudia Brucken and Andrew Poppy: "Running Up That Hill" (2005)

this one is beautiful!

Swedish artist the field samples "Under Ice" in one of his tracks, I forget which one...

I would never have even heard Kate Bush if it hadn't been for Pat Benatar's cover of "Wuthering Heights". It's on "Crimes of Passion". I also like White Flag's punk version, but it's kind of freaky.

Jane Birkin: "Mother Stands For Comfort" (2006)
This is a splendid cover, well worth hearing.

Happy Rhodes has covered a few Kate Bush songs, and they are simply incredible. Check this out:
And Dream of Sheep (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmxM6Rjx2u4)

don't forget Kate's Bush!!


we do a great "and dream of sheep" cover!

Placebo's Running Up That Hill is very inspiring.
