Kate Bush’s 1984 “Experiment IV” video — they don’t make ’em like that anymore

In 1986, Kate Bush’s record label pushed her to write a new song for her first best-of album, The Whole Story. Under what she called her tightest deadline ever, she ended up writing a song and directing a video that was a stylistic bridge between her previous album and next album.

This is the video she made. (And this best copy I found on YouTube; very grainy, sorry.)

Did you spot Hugh Laurie and Dawn French?

Unbelievably by today’s standards, this video was considered too “adult” to be shown on British television when it was made.
