Everyone that knows me is very aware that I’m a fool for a female vocalist, and it’s this admiration that, thankfully, lead me to Kate Bush about a year ago. Since my discovery of Kate’s very raw, unquestionable talent – which is possibly the best definition of what I wish the music industry was and what I hope it will one day get back to – I’ve been hooked.
On that note, I’ve put together a list of my Top 20 Kate Bush Songs, some renowned and others that are slightly less popular.
1. Wuthering Heights
2. Running Up That Hill
5. This Woman’s Work
6. The Man With The Child In His Eyes
7. Hounds Of Love
8. Army Dreamers
9. And Dream Of Sheep
10. Waking The Witch
11. There Goes A Tenner
12. The Dreaming
13. The Wedding List
16. Hammer Horror
18. Experiment IV
19. Them Heavy People
20. Sat In Your Lap
All of these tracks can be found on Kate’s official Spotify page, so do check them all out – especially those you haven’t listened to already – and add them to your playlist. You won’t regret it!
If I’ve had a stressful day, coming in, making coffee and collapsing on my bed to listen to European indie folk band Daughter is the perfect cure. ‘Youth’ is a particular favourite of mine, which is why I chose it for this week’s ‘Music Monday’…

The mellow tone is ideal if you just want to lie down after work and put some music on. This live version is 100% perfection…
I love a bit of Hot Chip! They’re an awesome, London-based British electronic band, and their sound is incredibly catchy and up-beat!
My brother reminded me about Hot Chip’s ‘Ready For The Floor’ last week and I’m hooked, AGAIN! If you haven’t heard it before, have a listen:
I was only introduced to Hozier yesterday, however I’m entranced by his exceptional, perfect voice. “Take Me To Church” is the track that’s stuck in my head, and for good reason. Have a listen:
I have a whole library of musicians I look to when I’m in an upbeat mood, and OneRepublic is one of them. “Good Life” is a track I probably listen to way too much, but it’s by far one of OneRepublic’s best, so you can’t blame me. Have a listen:
