    This Woman's Work is beautiful.

    I prefer the Maxwell cover.

    Interesting that the real fans (most of the people in this thread now) all gave this a 9

    HOT STATS!

    I love it. I probably docked it a point because of its overuse in any film/advent/docudrama in ANY sad scene that has nothing to do with the song's subject matter (which is childbirth and not even that obscurely)

    I watched She's Having a Baby purely on the strength of this song being on the soundtrack. It was quite good but I don't remember most of it.

    I think I want to hear it. I was just thinking, this is nice enough but I bet a remix/cover would be amazing.

    Obligatory screech mention.

    And she'll not have a reputation as a dirty great nonce hanging over her.

    I think the white dress one is more well-known PERSONALLY but I may just be speaking for myself

    Now this is out of the way I'm pretty sure #1 is going to be that song about Ken Livingstone.

    THE OUTSIDE VIDEO :disco:

    This always makes me feel proper Christmassy. I researched the hill it was filmed on because I wanted to go to there, but it was well far.

    I love this song, and have fond memories of butchering it at karaoke with a friend who looks like Noel Fielding the first time we met.

    I can't deny this is iconic and great fun. Kate Bush, as she has demonstrated tonight, loves nonsense. Most of the time it is lost on me, but this just hits right.

    And it's peak screeching too which helps.

    10/10

    If that horrible Soldi would have let us have two 11's, I'd have given Wuthering Heights one. What a SONG.
