Aerial

I’ve been listening to Kate Bush’s new album on my iPod. There is some beautiful, limpid music, expertly performed and produced, which really lifted my spirits on the way home from work.

But what’s with some of the lyrics? It’s raining / What has become of my painting / All the colours are running and Washing machine / Washing machine / Slooshy sloshy slooshy sloshy / Get that dirty shirty clean. She must be gently taking the piss. It’s the only explanation that makes any sense to me.
