The songs are tense, headlong and overlain and sometimes filtered through accents. They lull and startle with wild dynamic swings. I listened to it on repeat as I worked on my first two novels. The Dreaming became a kind of sonic amulet; an order to take the road less travelled. Ripples of la petite mort? A soul looking down on its death bed? An unwillingly unreliable narrator who only knows for sure that the love and tears of his soon-to-be bereaved are all in vain, and all too late It landed in the Live Aid summer like fresh air at the end of a long-haul flight.
Her voice had ripened. The lyrics were still cliche-free, still uniquely Kate, but less enigmatic and more user-friendly than on The Dreaming. It is a thumping, stormy, sacred-and-profane, frankly orgasmic tryst of a song. Which, in an important sense, made it my first taste of feminism in popular art. There is also an Italian translation, which is called Domani Dimenticherai, recorded by Zenima.
The piano just started speaking to me. It was a theory that I had had for a while that I just observed in most of the men that I know: the fact that they just are little boys inside and how wonderful it is that they manage to retain this magic.
I, myself, am attracted to older men, I guess, but I think that's the same with every female. I think it's a very natural, basic instinct that you look continually for your father for the rest of your life, as do men continually look for their mother in the women that they meet. I don't think we're all aware of it, but I think it is basically true.
