"King of the Mountain" is a song by English singer songwriter Kate Bush. It was released as a single by EMI on 24 October 2005 - her first single since "And So Is Love," which had been released 11 years before. It was first played on BBC Radio 2 on 21 September 2005. The lyrics refer to Citizen Kane and Elvis Presley. The track was produced by Kate Bush; the recording was engineered by Del Palmer and mastered by James Guthrie. The cover art is a drawing by her son Bertie. The B-Side of the UK single is Kate's cover version of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing". Upon its release, the single became an immediate success and became Bush's highest-charting single in more than 20 years, since "Running Up That Hill" reached UK #3 in August 1985. The single also reached the Top 5 in Canada. It is the only single taken from the album Aerial. The music video received its first airing on the UK's Channel 4 on 15 October 2005. It was directed by Jimmy Murakami, produced by Michael Algar, edited at The Farm (Dublin) by Hugh Chaloner with flame and 3D effects by Niall O hOisin, Arron Inglis, Brian O'Durnin and Mark from Australia. Some viewers believe the video features Rolf Harris impersonating Elvis Presley, possibly because Rolf Harris plays didgeridoo on the album Aerial and provides vocals to tracks 'An Architect's Dream' and 'The Painters Link' on the second disc from Aerial 'A Sky of Honey'. However it is much more likely that the video features only Kate Bush, and the Elvis Presley character is indeed herself in heavy disguise.


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.

King of the Mountain - Kate Bush

KING OF THE MOUNTAIN

Could you see the aisles of women?
Could you see them screaming and weeping?
Could you see the storm rising?
Could you see the guy who was driving?
Could you climb higher and higher?
Could you climb right over the top?
Why does a multi-millionaire
Fill up his home with priceless junk?

The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man?
In the snow with Rosebud
And king of the mountain

Another Hollywood waitress
Is telling us she's having your baby
And there's a rumour that you're on ice
And you will rise again someday
And that there's a photograph
Where you're dancing on your grave

The wind is whistling
The wind is whistling
Through the house

Elvis are you out there somewhere
Looking like a happy man?
In the snow with Rosebud
And king of the mountain

The wind it blows
The wind it blows the door closed
