Kate Bush (4/12)

List item

Born in 1958 in Bexleyheath, Kent, England, the incredibly talented Kate Bush began writing her own songs at the age of 11, and in 1978 became the first British woman to reach number one in the UK with a self-written song – “Wuthering Heights” which topped the UK charts for four weeks. Bush wrote the song at the age of 18 after watching the 1967 BBC adaption of the 1847 novel Wuthering Heights, after which she also read the book.

After her initial 1970’s success, Kate Bush went on to have a string of hits throughout the 80’s, including  “Babooshka” (1980), “Running Up That Hill” (1985),  and “Don’t Give Up” (1986) with Peter Gabriel.
