Wuthering Heights

300 Kate Bush Impersonators Pay Tribute to Kate Bush’s Iconic "Wuthering Heights" Video

I will never forget my first hearing of singer-songwriter Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights."
It’s an acquired taste, but a lasting one. Bush’s debut single, written on a full moon night at the tender age of 18, has become a classic in its own right.

The UK version, above, features the sort of over-the-top theatrics rarely displayed outside the privacy of bedroom mirrors, as Bush pirouettes, cartwheels, and emotes in a gauzy white frock.

When it came time for the American release, below, Bush painted her nails, rouged her lips, and took to the great outdoors in a bright red gown and tights, below.

Comedian Noel Fielding camped his way through that version in 2011, raising money for charity with a nearly 30-year-old reference.

But for sheer numbers, nothing trumps the Shambush! stunt at the top of the page. In May, 2013, the self-proclaimed "ludicrous performance troupe" invited all interested Bush fans to join them in a Brighton park to recreate the famous video en masse. (Gowns and wigs were available onsite.)

More than 300 participants heeded the call, allowing Shambush! to achieve its goal of setting the world’s record for the most number of people dressed as Kate Bush. (As one of the organizers pointed out, they would’ve set the world’s record even if it had only been the three of them.)

What a wonderful, ridiculous moment in music history to be a part of!

For those inspired to recreate the madness with their own crew, Shambush! breaks down (and names) some of the most iconic moves in an instructional video, below.


"Let people catch something from your heart that will cause no discomfort,
but help them to sing."

'Thank you'

'Thank you' is the best prayer that anyone could say.
I say that one a lot.
Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.

tales whose gate are guarded by Dragons;

we must fight in order to conquer it."
