"I tried to project myself into the role of the book heroine and, because she is a ghost, I gave her a high-pitched wailing voice."
("Daily Mail", 8 March 1978) "I wrote in my flat, sitting at the upright piano one night in March at about midnight.
There was a full moon and the curtains were open, and every time I looked up for ideas, I looked at the moon.
Actually, it came quite easily. I couldn't seem to get out of the chorus - it had a really circular feel to it, which is why it repeats.
I had originally written something more complicated, but I couldn't link it up, so I kept the first bit and repeated it.
I was really pleased, because it was the first song I had written for a while, as I'd been busy rehearsing with the KT Band." ("Kate Bush Club" magazine, first issue, 1979)
When did you write the song, cause the record came out the beginning of year, was it january or february? "That's right, and I'd written the song in the summer before. Really just before we'd recorded the album, it was my latest song." ("The Multi-Coloured Swap Shop",TV show, 20 January 1979) (performance from the Duch TV show "Toppop", March 25, 1978)
