- Kate Bush – Wuthering Heights
For her tube, she had to hit her fist, because it was not at all the record company’s first choice! This title, which will remain in the annals, comes to her from a film of which she has only seen the end. She was very small but “The Heights of Hurlevent” according to Emily Brontë will haunt her for a long time. She will go to No. 1 in the UK and will also become the first female singer-songwriter to reach No. 1. It had never been seen! Between her rare appearances and her way of moving inherited from her training as a contemporary dancer, Kate Bush has everything of the mystical and unapproachable singer. Today she is making an unexpected comeback that has caused a lot of ink to flow.

Bambino is Dalida’s first big success, it propels her and the public welcomes her with enthusiasm. He begs for more. It’s done in September when we border on the riot at the entrance.
