♫ Mixtape: Bush League
It’s a Kate Bush summer.
The story: this season of Stranger Things prominently featured Bush’s “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” 👟 and now it’s the only thing anybody wants to listen to.
Personally, we’re thrilled about it. 🎧
So, whether this is your introduction or just another time around the block, here is a collection of songs spotlighting Kate Bush and the sounds and singers she influenced.
While Bush League spans several decades of this woman’s work, it should not be considered anything more than an aperitif. 🥃 It could have easily been much longer and more expansive—I mean, it doesn’t even feature Big Boi!

JP: This song contains, perhaps, the best opening line ever penned.
KM: Florence has always struck me as a disciple from the same coven, and "Big God" is Flo at her witchiest.
