Kate Bush reaches the Wuthering Heights of receiving a CBE from the Queen

Kate Bush has been awarded a CBE by the Queen at Windsor Castle. Kate Bush receives the CBE for her services to music over the last 35 years. Who would have thought when Kate Bush released her first single “Wuthering Heights” in 1978, that she would go on to have the sustained success and longevity of career that she has had?!!

When Kate Bush’s debut single “Wuthering Heights” reached No1 in April 1978, the Recordpress author believed that because Kate Bush was so idiosyncratic, eccentric and unusual, that her song would be a one hit wonder, much like Emily Bronte’s novel that inspired the song!! In the event the song that replaced “Wuthering Heights” at No1, the LS Lowry tribute “Matchstalk Men & Matchstalk Cats & Dogs” by Brian & Michael was the one hit wonder, with Kate Bush going on to have incredible success over the coming decades.

Kate Bush proved herself to be much more than a novelty act, backing up “Wuthering Heights” with a string of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Although not everyone’s cup of tea, in the same way that Earl Grey lacks universal appeal to tea drinkers, Kate Bush quickly established a cult following. Kate Bush’s music is an acquired taste and the Recordpress author freely admits that although a fan of her three minute singles, finds her distinctive vocal style somewhat overbearing and grating in a 40 minute album format!!
