32) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Kate Bush-"Before the Dawn - Act 1"
Well it seems that due to a well placed song in a soundtrack, Kate Bush is now a record breaker. Finally achiving a number one single worldwide with "Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)", 37 years after it was first a UK hit, making it the widest gap between top charting singles, and having her become the oldest woman to take the top spot. In the process, making so many young fans, even overtaking Lizzo, Harry Stiles, BTS and others mega acts to have the #1 single in the world. It is odd as a thirty-plus year fan of her work, but most certainly welcome. Kate deserves all the praise. She's one of the few artists whom I own their entire studio album output, and it's really amazing to see it. I've played most of her studio output at this point, but then I thought of playing her live album which documents her London residency in 2014, making her return to the live stage in thirty years. However, the release has a running time of 2 hours and 35 minutes, which is a bit long into the morning. So, we decided that this morning we play Act I to start, and in the coming weeks, we'll get on Acts II and III. Act I features various songs from four of her five newest releases dating back to the singles from 'Hounds of Love', which saw limited, mostly charity live performances at the time. One song from 'The Sensual World', and a few from 'The Red Shoes' and 'Aerial' take up the rest of the Act. (She saves a performance of one song from her newest studio album to date, 2011's '50 Words for Snow' for an encore in Act III.) Next up is Act II, "The Ninth Wave", which is the entire second side of 'Hounds of Love', considered by some to be her magnum opus. That will be on in a couple of weeks most likely. "One more step to the top of the city. Put me up on the angel's shoulders" - Michael - MFL
