* PayEvilUntoEvil: The bride in "The Wedding List" tracks down the man who murdered her new husband at their wedding. In the end, she shoots him before turning the gun on herself. On top of everything, she was pregnant so her unborn child died as well.

* ArtisticLicense: She'll generally go with what makes a better story rather than the gospel truth; for example, 'Houdini' ends with the titular escapologist dying while performing a trick as his wife watches in horror and grief rather the truth of his death (which was due to peritonitis after being punched in the stomach).

** The 1953 film ''Film/{{Houdini}}'' starring Creator/JanetLeigh and Creator/TonyCurtis, does however, end with Houdini dying in the Chinese Water Torture cell and not of peritonitis. If we assume that Kate saw the movie then she most definitely *did* do the research.

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: Several over the course of the "Ninth Wave" suite; for example, the quiet "little light" in the beginning "Waking the Witch" is a call back to "And Dream of Sheep". [[{{Foreshadowing}} It goes both ways though]].


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Like mentioned above, this is very present in the "Ninth Wave" suite, one example being the short appearance of the distorted [[SpokenWordInMusic spoken word voice]] at the beginning of "Waking the Witch" before it's getting more prominently featured on "Watching You Without Me". Another example is the quiet "over here", also in the beginning of "Waking the Witch", which re-appears later in "Jig of Life" and leads into [[EpiphanyComeback a particularly striking part]] of that song.

Kate Bush, [[UsefulNotes/KnightFever CBE]] is unique among musicians on the planet. Besides her eccentric music, she is known for her unforgettable voice. At first, it was high-pitched. [[VocalEvolution Her voice got deeper (and arguably better) over the years]]. Her music [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly cannot be shoehorned into one category.]] Usually, people just label her as "art rock" or "[[AlternativeRock alternative]]" and call it a day. She has touched many genres, including pop, electronic, jazz, flamenco, rock, waltz, Renaissance, and disco-funk. Her lyrics are another unique aspect of her music. They are often based on history, films and literature, such as her signature song "Literature/WutheringHeights", which was inspired by the 1970 film and the book.

The success of ''The Kick Inside'' forced her to make a quick follow-up album, ''Lionheart''. It contains one of her most well-known songs, "Wow". She followed up with her first and last tour, called the ''Tour of Life'', which she was very involved in creating. It was quite theatrical. Kate had a costume change after virtually every single song, and she danced and moved gracefully on the stage with a few dancers and mostly eschewed playing piano. Even though it was filmed, only an edited version is available. One-and-a-half hours were left out, so it could be shown on TV. It's highly unlikely that the full concert will be released. Fortunately, some performances can be found on Website/YouTube.
