Oh darling make it go away


I was getting ready for work and listening to music, as one does, and the fabulous song by Joe Jackson, Steppin’ Out, played. I  was recently reminded of that song on Fluxblog a few weeks ago and it’s been in my head ever since. I thought I was going to write about it today as I was listening to it. But then “This Woman’s Work” by Kate Bush played right afterwards and I found myself, a few bars in, covered in my own tears, sobbing. I think the universe knows that I needed a good cry this week. I didn’t think this week would be hard for me, but it’s proving to be very emotional. I am being haunted by ghosts.

So I will leave the video here, in case you want a good, cathartic, cry too. 

Tomorrow I will be back with my regularly scheduled photography.

  1. Kate Bush’s This Woman’s Work is one of my favorites. I discovered it after hearing Maxwell’s remake of the song. Maxwell did an AMAZING job with Kate’s song. I love both versions equally. If you haven’t heard Maxwell’s version, trust me, it’s worth a listen. And yes, it’s hard to hold back the tears on this one.

      1. I don’t know if you saw Maxwell’s official video for the song, but there is a live version that has to be the best live performance EVER! It’s hard to believe that he is singing live. I got chills listening to him sing. You can search for “Maxwell Woman’s Work Live.” He also gives credit where credit is dew by telling the audience that Kate Bush is the BOMB!
