„David Bowie had everything. He was intelligent, imaginative, brave, charismatic, cool, sexy and truly inspirational both visually and musically.“

—  Kate Bush
Context: David Bowie had everything. He was intelligent, imaginative, brave, charismatic, cool, sexy and truly inspirational both visually and musically. He created such staggeringly brilliant work, yes, but so much of it and it was so good. There are great people who make great work but who else has left a mark like his? No one like him. Tribute to David Bowie, in "David Bowie, as remembered by…" in The Guardian (17 January 2016) https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/jan/17/david-bowie-as-seen-by-deborah-harry-chris-kate-bush-stein-carlos-alomar-julien-temple-edwyn-collins

„On top of the world,
Looking over the edge,
You could see them coming.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, Hounds of Love (1985), Context: On top of the world, Looking over the edge, You could see them coming. You looked too small In their big, black car, To be a threat to the men in power.

„I do think I go out of my way to be a very normal person and I just find it frustrating that people think that I'm some kind of weirdo reclusive that never comes out into the world.“

—  Kate Bush
MOJO interview (2005), Context: I do think I go out of my way to be a very normal person and I just find it frustrating that people think that I'm some kind of weirdo reclusive that never comes out into the world. Y'know, I'm a very strong person and I think that's why actually I find it really infuriating when I read, 'She had a nervous breakdown' or 'She's not very mentally stable, just a weak, frail little creature'.

„The great thing about art on any level is that it can speak to all people if it’s achieved properly.“

—  Kate Bush
Context: The great thing about art on any level is that it can speak to all people if it’s achieved properly. When I’ve heard a piece of music or seen a painting that moves me, it gives me something. That’s such an incredibly special experience. I have intentions as a writer, but people — when they’re listening to a track — will take from it what they interpret. Sometimes people mishear my lyrics and think a song’s about something it isn’t. That doesn’t matter. If it speaks to them and they get something positive from it, it’s great. As quoted in "In conversation with Kate Bush" by Elio Iannacci in MacLeans (28 November 2016)

„Ooh, it gets dark! It gets lonely,
On the other side from you.
I pine a lot. I find the lot
Falls through without you.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, The Kick Inside (1978), Context: Ooh, it gets dark! It gets lonely, On the other side from you. I pine a lot. I find the lot Falls through without you. I'm coming back, love. Cruel Heathcliff, my one dream, My only master.

„There is magic within
There is magic without
Follow me and you'll learn
Just what life's all about.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, Singles and rarities, Context: When the fantasy bells Of the universe ring You can fly through the sky On a dragonfly's wing. There is magic within There is magic without Follow me and you'll learn Just what life's all about.

„I was born in a cloud…
Now I am falling.
I want you to catch me.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, 50 Words for Snow (2011), Context: I was born in a cloud… Now I am falling. I want you to catch me. Look up and you'll see me. You know you can hear me. The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.

„With no words, with no song
I'm gonna dance the dream
And make the dream come true…“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, The Red Shoes (1993), Context: Feel your hair come tumbling down Feel your feet start kissing the ground Feel your arms are opening out And see your eyes are lifted to God With no words, with no song I'm gonna dance the dream And make the dream come true…

„There's something very special indeed,
In all the places where I've seen you shine, boy.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, The Kick Inside (1978), Context: There's something very special indeed, In all the places where I've seen you shine, boy. There's something very real in how I feel, honey. It's in me. It's in me, And you know it's for real. Tuning in on your saxophone…

„I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can't understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other's roles, if we could actually be in each other's place for a while, I think we'd both be very surprised! … And I think it would lead to a greater understanding.“

—  Kate Bush
Context: I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman, can't understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other's roles, if we could actually be in each other's place for a while, I think we'd both be very surprised! … And I think it would lead to a greater understanding. And really the only way I could think it could be done was either... you know, I thought a deal with the devil, you know. And I thought, "well, no, why not a deal with God!" You know, because in a way it's so much more powerful the whole idea of asking God to make a deal with you. You see, for me it is still called "Deal With God", that was its title. But we were told that if we kept this title that it would not be played in any of the religious countries, Italy wouldn't play it, France wouldn't play it, and Australia wouldn't play it! Ireland wouldn't play it, and that generally we might get it blacked purely because it had God in the title. On her song "Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)", in a Radio 1 Classic Albums interview with Richard Skinner (26 January 1992) http://gaffa.org/cloud/music/running_up_that_hill.html

„I want to hear you laugh,
Don't let the mystery go now.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, Singles and rarities, Context: December will be magic again. Don't miss the brightest star, Kiss under mistletoe, I want to hear you laugh, Don't let the mystery go now.

„Not until I'm ready for you,
Not until I'm ready for you
Can I have it all.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, The Dreaming (1982), Context: I don't know why I'm crying. Am I suspended in Gaffa? Not until I'm ready for you, Not until I'm ready for you Can I have it all.

„With a kiss
I'd pass the key
And feel your tongue
Teasing and receiving.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, The Dreaming (1982), Context: With a kiss I'd pass the key And feel your tongue Teasing and receiving. With your spit Still on my lip, You hit the water.

„Only tragedy allows the release
Of love and grief never normally seen.“

—  Kate Bush
Song lyrics, The Dreaming (1982), Context: Only tragedy allows the release Of love and grief never normally seen. I didn't want to let them see me weep, I didn't want to let them see me weak, But I know I have shown That I stand at the gates alone.

„Artists shouldn't be made famous.“

—  Kate Bush
Context: Artists shouldn't be made famous. You know… they're just … as important as… um doctors, and priests … or maybe not as important sometimes, and yet they have this huge aura of almost god-like quality about them, just because their craft makes a lot of money. And at the same time it is a forced importance — you know, football stars and theatre stars — It is man-made so the press can feed off it. Profiles in Rock interview (December 1980)

„I want to be in a position where I can function as a human being. Even more so now where you've got this sort of truly silly preoccupation with celebrities. Just because somebody's been in an ad on TV, so what? Who gives a toss?“

—  Kate Bush
MOJO interview (2005), Context: For the last 12 years, I've felt really privileged to be living such a normal life. It's so a part of who I am. It's so important to me to do the washing, do the Hoovering. Friends of mine in the business don't know how dishwashers work. For me, that's frightening. I want to be in a position where I can function as a human being. Even more so now where you've got this sort of truly silly preoccupation with celebrities. Just because somebody's been in an ad on TV, so what? Who gives a toss?
