The 10 Best Kate Bush Hidden Gems

Amazing Tracks Beyond “Running Up That Hill”

Dec 21, 2022

The summer of 2022 belonged to Kate Bush. Her unlikely but welcome return to the music world has been a meteoric rise with “Running Up That Hill” recently reaching 158 million YouTube views and taking the top spot on Billboard’s music charts.

However, these milestones mean little in comparison to the new generation of music listeners discovering Bush’s music for the first time thanks in part to the song’s use in the Netflix show Stranger Things.

With Bush certainly having nothing to prove in terms of creating challenging music, considering albums such as 1982’s densely intriguing The Dreaming, the approach for her latest album is comparatively simple, direct, and as much of an enveloping experience as anything in her catalogue.
