Depending upon where you were, Kate Bush wasn't really what would be termed "pop culture." She was mostly played, in North America, by oddball FM stations and college radio. Top 40 stations gave her a skip. If anything made it to those stations it would have been "Babushka", largely because the music video made the rounds on MTV and "The New Music" (a TV show that largely covered Alt and fringe music, in Toronto). Point of Interest: One of the two hosts of "The New Music" was JD Roberts, aka John Roberts who is currently a reporter for Fox News.
I think that really raised her profile, at the time. Around here a lot of people who had never heard of her, were suddenly wondering who she was. And that's given that Toronto was a major music centre at the time.
Still love the retelling of the story of Heathcliff and Catherine - written when she was 18 it made her the first female artist in the UK to achieve a number-one single with a self-penned song.
I‘d just watched a Wuthering Heights TV adaption with my mother when the song was released onto the moors
Another great artist I've meant to dig more into for many years. I grew up with some exposure as my mother was a huge fan of Hounds of Love, and my brother and I were passionate fanatics about Peter Gabriel's So from a young age.
