8 May 2013 – Kate Bush – Cloudbusting (with a Neil Halstead bonus) – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

Here in the Rochester, NY, area, where I write this blog, we sit today, with a thickening cloud cover and corresponding barometric pressure that I am quite positive is causing pain for many with nerve or joint issues today.

Thankfully, I am not one of those sufferers.

But, for them, perhaps Wilhelm Reich’s research on his farm, Orgonon, would help open the skies.  Kate Bush’s song, loosely based on Peter Reich’s book – he was Wilhelm’s son – is a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to not only rainmaking, but a close relationship between father (played in this video by Donald Sutherland) and son (played by… well, Kate Bush).

As a bonus, here is Neil Halstead’s fantastic cover of the song, re-imagined as a lullaby.
