Music - Track of the Day

Kate Bush - 'Hello Earth'
For the final day of the final week of 'Track of the Day', I would like to share this amazing track by Kate Bush from her brilliant album 'Hounds of Love'. I have already used a track from  that album - Jig of Life- which you can hear again if you go to 'Previous Tracks of the Day', but it is so good I just had to include it.
This album is a concept album, which means that when you listen to all the tracks on the album one after the other, they tell a story.  I wonder what you think this song might be about?
I have included this song in Electronic Week as it uses samples of sounds so effectively. What do you think the beginning sample was about? Why was it used? If you listen behind the piano and the vocals (singing) you can hear the keyboards 'drone' (a drone is music which stays on one note) Does it remind you of Space? Why?
I hope you have enjoyed listening to some of these tracks over the past few weeks. I have really loved doing this page.
Stay safe. Best wishes, Mrs Vieitez.
