It’s always on the first of December that I play Kate’s song β€˜December Will Be Magic Again’.

I love this woman and everything that she stands for.

Merry Christmas to you, Kate! πŸŽ„

After my amazing experience yesterday with a complete stranger, David, I remembered Kate’s song β€˜L’Amour Looks Something Like You’. It’s the only song I could think of with the word β€˜aura’ in it.

The lovely, inspirational Kate gets 5ft3.5, but I imagine she might be less now. She’s a vegetarian!

I came in around 30 minutes ago and saw my tiny little ginger kitten, Clovis. I said to her, β€œHello my beloved! I love my beloved…” and within seconds, t realised that I had quoted from Kate Bush’s song β€˜Breathing’!

This will be Clovis’s song now. She’s so tiny and small, and needs special looking after, with separate feeding sessions. Her relatives The Three Triplet Boys, are so strong that they can overpower me! When they’re fully grown, they are going to be enormous.

I had three new girls and three new boys last year, the boys of whom are definitely dominant.

Anyway, the lovable Kate gets 5ft3.5. I thank her for inspiring Clovis’s theme song! XXX πŸŽΆπŸ˜€πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Last night, I was watching the film β€˜Night of the Demon’, which was one of the movies introduced by Caroline Munro as part of her Cellar Club offerings. I heard some actor come out with, β€œIt’s in the trees - it’s coming!”

This is the very same sentence which introduced Kate’s song β€˜Hounds of Love’ and it sounded the same too.

Whether it was used for Kate’s song I do not know. I tried to find out, but failed. β€˜Night of the Demon’ hailed from 1957, so a year before Kate was born. This is indeed the sort of wonderful thing Kate would have included in a hit song of hers.

The album β€˜Hounds of Love’ made number one, and there was a celebratory party for the album at the planetarium in September 1985.

5ft3.5 peak.

I had Kate’s song β€˜Lionheart’ whirring through my head when I went to bed on Monday, the day of our Queen’s funeral.

In it, Kate expresses her love of England, and it’s an absolutely beautiful tribute to Kate’s beloved country.


5ft3.5, though very likely a little less now.

I loved her too. Her talent was/(is) bewilderingly brilliant and she was in imho one of the most amazing women I’ve ever seen. Human beauty at its absolute peak but her character, quirkiness and feminity were also off the charts. Intriguing, unique, genius talent. Just wish she shared her genius with us all more often.

Wishing the beautiful, legendary Kate Bush a Very Happy Birthday! I’ve followed her career since 1978, and very rewarding it has been too.

5ft3.25 now.

When feeling low, I always turn to the music of Kate Bush!
She has helped me through many situations. I absolutely
love her. My cats love her too!

British people will have been hearing the 1975 song 'Magic' by the Scottish glam rock band, Pilot.

Ian Bairnson, a keyboardist and saxophonist with Pilot, played on Kate's early work. There were possibly more members of Pilot joining the KT Bush Band, but I haven't done enough research of late. I remember recognising the names back in 78 when I bought The Kick Inside - a long time ago!

Wishing the brilliant Kate Bush a very happy 63rd Birthday today!

Many thanks for all your lovely music over the years - since 1978, in fact.

I got a question right on tonight's 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?' thanks entirely to the lyrics from the Kate Bush song 'Violin'.

The contestant was asked which of four musicians was reputed to have been in league with Satan? I remembered straight away that it was Italian violinist Niccolo Paganini. With Kate's vast knowledge, it makes sense that she should include facts such as this in her songs.

Great voice has Kate. Just seen some online nude pics of her. Superb. Probably lost a little height by her 60s. 5’2”

I just woke up from a dream in which I was feeding my cats, past and present, including a fully grown friendly garden tiger, πŸ… and singing Kate's song 'Them Heavy People'!

Aren't dreams funny?

To one of the most beautiful-hearted people in the whole world - Kate Bush, who celebrates her 62nd Birthday today. I love you Kate, and your music has helped me through many a tough time.

Have a lovely family day with your son Bertie, and all the people who are lucky enough to know you. XXX πŸŒžπŸ’•πŸ‘©

5ft3.5. I've seen it in Kate's own handwriting in a music paper interview... back in the late 70s, so she might be a bit smaller now. πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜€

Kate thinks right and she is worth her weight in gold!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/20
Kate is a vegetarian and I read that 'She won't eat anything with a face." What a lovely philosophy, I thought! The girl fan on 'Dinner Date' is also a veggie, as am I.

One wonders whether she could have grown taller if she'd eaten meat; Kate was so advanced for her years as a young girl that I'm sure her eating habits were perfected in her teens.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/20
⭐ The young lady's name is Sophie and she owns a tortoiseshell cat called Daisy 🌼. She has long, dark hair like Kate has, only not so wild!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/20
I'm watching 'Dinner Date' right now and I was most impressed that a young girl was a fan of Kate's. She did a very respectable take-off of Kate's Number One hit from early 1978, 'Wuthering Heights', which isn't the easiest of songs to mimic.

I’m listening to Kate right now. She once said that she would have become a psychologist if she hadn’t become a musician.

Her music helps me through all my situations.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Feb/20
I had a Kate Bush song this morning stuck in my head called, 'L'Amour Looks Something Like You', so it simply HAD to be played! β©πŸŽ΅πŸ‘©πŸŽΆ

Kate has a song from 'Never for Ever' which mentions the names of quite a number of deceased rock and soul stars. One line goes, "Bolan and Moony are heading the show tonight..."

The song is called 'Blow Away'.

Isn't it ironic - and coincidentally, somewhat beautiful - that the two late stars should get their pages on Celebheights on the very same day?

5ft3.5 for Kate. πŸŽ§πŸŽΆπŸŽ΅β€οΈπŸ‘©πŸ“€

There was a question just now on 'The Chase' as to the title of the first album released - in early 1978 - by Kate Bush. The alternatives were:-

1) The Kick Offside βš½πŸ˜•
2) The Kick Inside or
3) The Kick Upstairs. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

For a guy who claimed to have bought quite a few of her records, surely he should have known it was the second one? 'The Kick Inside' is a song taken from the album of the same name and it's about a girl who is pregnant. That's all I have to say on the matter. This is all rather 'X' Certificate stuff! 🀫

Of course, Anne Hegerty got it right. The guy went for 'The Kick Upstairs'!

Kate gets 5ft3.5.

I had a friend who saw Kate in a local Marks and Spencer's store - buying underwear!

The friend is the only woman I can think of in my adulthood who actually pretended to be 2" SMALLER than she was - at LEAST! She claimed to be 4ft11, but I could look her straight in the face, and I was 5ft2/2.5!

Kate asked her if she liked her music and she said that she didn't. That should have been me Kate was speaking to!

Kate can have 5ft3.5. πŸ˜πŸ’

Gorgeous! I'm listening to her right now. What a woman! πŸ’“
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jun/19
@ Rob - Do you think you could add Kate to the Rock Singers page? She's more than just a mere pop singer. I consider that she's individual enough to be a rock singer; discovered by David Gilmour and gone on to be one in a million, no, make that a legend in her own lifetime. Her songs send shivers down my whole person, in the nicest possible way. Thanks Rob!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jun/19
This woman is ever powerful to me.

She once said that she wanted to help people. Well, help them she does - through her music. I love you Kate. πŸ’•

Kate has just afforded me an evening of great memories! What a wonderful woman! I love her!

Kate can have a full-blown 5ft3.5 - and lots of love!

Stephen Fry and Donald Sutherland partook in her videos. How beautiful is that?
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Aug/18
@ Chris - I remember a questionnaire she filled in when she first rose to fame and it said 5ft3.5 in her own handwriting!

I've just noticed what a lovely thumbnail picture Rob has found for Kate! πŸ‘
Beautiful, and rightly so!
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jul/17

My favourite girl singer, full of mysticism and the most original sounds ever.
Kate is the female equivilant of David Bowie, with concerts equally visually stunning and exciting! Both superstars took miming lessons from Lindsay Kemp who, if you are interested, can be seen in the original 'Wicker Man' playing the Landlord and father to red-hot Britt Ekland, famous for trying to entice Edward Woodward into bed (to test his virginity, which is of utmost importance to their purpose for him) with her singing and dancing routine!
Well, Happy Birthday to Kate, who was 5ft3.5 in a personal questionnaire she filled in while doing her first and only concert tour until very recently.
I somehow doubt that Kate is still 5ft3.5, but being as she is a private, family-orientated person, she is going to keep that under wraps! She communicates with her fans through her explicit and haunting songs, and if she has lost say an inch, then that's fine by me! What is of far greater importance is that Kate has kept churning out the CD's, each one a true masterpiece of genius, and then the other year she was back for her fans with a concert that was 100% Kate Bush perfect!
Which fans could ever ask for more from their idol? I've loved her since February 1978; she even comes from near my way (Lewisham), just like David Bowie (Bromley/Beckenham)!
I have often felt that Kate would have made a great actress, but anything she has to offer her fans is more than welcome to take up residence in my overcrowded household! Ha ha ha!


I will put a highly respectable 5ft3 for my fave female rave!
Elizabeth said on 7/Oct/12
Kate is the most beautiful woman who has ever existed. There's a reason why John Lydon, Dr. Dre, Tupac, David Tibet, Peter Gabriel, etc etc love her to death. Musical genius doesn't even begin to describe her- she needs a whole new leixcon.

Kate's around 5"3 my friend met her and shes 5"3 they were the same height (neither in heels)
Rhineowion said on 7/Sep/08
Wow... I can't believe she's that short! She just looked so tall and svelte in her music videos. I actually searched her on here, because I was thinking about her height, and came on here expecting something like 5'9".
Anon. said on 16/Feb/08
I am sure i remember reading that she is 5ft 2 and a half in her biography written by Rob Janovic.
Frank said on 14/Nov/07
Kate Bush still the greatest singer in the world ...
And even with the years she still have this special beauty ... like when she was younger - a charm "
Javi said on 5/Oct/07
She was VERY thin at the 70`s, thats why she looks taller,however, I`d say she comes up to 5`4 at the very most.
I love Kate
Anonymous said on 13/Jul/06
Guys, I've seen her in real life too, and there is absolutely no way she comes up to 5'4! I'm 5'5Β½ and at the encounter we were both in flats and I was at least 2 inches taller than her! So I say 5'2 - 5'3 at very best.
Shannon said on 5/Jul/06
If she's the same Kate i'm thinking about-the Kate from Jakalope..I met her at after Edgefest and she was the same height as me and i'm 5'4 and she was not wearing heels.
Bill said on 23/May/05
I've met her and that seems about right + or - 1/2"
