This gallery contains 1 photo.

I am a huge Kate Bush fan, but Cloudbusting has to be my favourite song. I never knew what the song was about until now. I thought it was like a pep-talk about good things being just around the corner. 

In fact, Cloudbusting is about a real-life father-son duo in the 1950s who believed they had invented a machine, called a cloudbuster, to make it rain. This invention would result in crops being saved during a drought if successful… Continue reading

Horrifying!… Continue reading
