Cloudbusting - Kate Bush

Cloudbusting

The Whole Story
80s female vocalists pop alternative singer-songwriter


Like Bush's first hit "Wuthering Heights," this is based on a book. It was inspired by Peter Reich's 1973 Book of Dreams, which describes his father Wilhelm's arrest for contempt of court. Wilhelm Reich was an Austrian psychiatrist who was trained in Vienna by Sigmund Freud. His work combined Marxism and psychoanalysis to advocate sexual freedom. In the 1930s, Reich came up with the concept of "orgone," a physical energy contained in the atmosphere and in all living matter. The "Cloudbuster" was a device he came up with to manipulate the orgone energy in the atmosphere, which would force clouds to form and bring rain. Hawkwind and Patti Smith have both released songs about Reich's concept of Cloudbusting. Donald Sutherland appears in the video as the inventor/father.


Kate Bush (born Catherine Bush on 30 July 1958 in Welling, Kent, England, now part of Greater London) is an English singer and songwriter known for her expressive four-octave soprano voice, idiosyncratic and literary lyrics, and eclectic and meticulous musical and production style. She debuted in 1978 with the surprise hit "Wuthering Heights", which was number one in the British music charts for four weeks and the first UK number one by female artist with a self-penned song.

Cloudbusting - Kate Bush

I still dream of Orgonon.
I wake up crying.
You're making rain,
And you're just in reach,
When you and sleep escape me.

You're like my yo-yo
That glowed in the dark.
What made it special
Made it dangerous,
So I bury it
And forget.

But every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

On top of the world,
Looking over the edge,
You could see them coming.
You looked too small
In their big, black car,
To be a threat to the men in power.

I hid my yo-yo
In the garden.
I can't hide you
From the government.
Oh, God, Daddy
I won't forget,

'Cause every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna to happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

And every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out
Like your son's coming out,
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.
Ooh, just saying it could even make it happen.

We've been cloudbusting daddy

Your sun's coming out. Your son's coming out.
