Thanks, I’ll be ON tomorrow! Keep my eyes and ears open!
I wish Kate Bush would relate to the public who the man with the child in his eyes is. Or what the song is about. And the conditions psychologically and age that she was when she wrote it. I understand that the idea came to her around 12 years olfd and she spent some considerable time afterwards creating it, that is around 13 to 14 yrs old she was while still working on it, and she continued developing it afterwards of that. Evidently it was one of the first songs that comprised her earliest releases, along with Wuthering Heights, if I am correct on that. The video version is well done and has a dream like ethereal reality in the backdrop of the visuals, as if she is suspended in the spiritual worlds while she is singing the piece . She also is alseep when when she meets the man with the child in his eyes , that is at the opening of the work, This also as related in the video.
The 6Music show was quite good. Enjoyed hearing Under the Ivy on the wireless. 🙂
