You don't hear much of her music these days, but this morning on Michael Ball's Sunday brunch he played her version of Rocket Man.

I was surprised it was very good. She put her own interpretation to it, but not as wierd as she can do.

Anyone else hear it?

I've heard it before, but not for quite some time - it's good, but I prefer Kate's own music. Smile

Although I don't listen to R2 on Sundays at all I do know that the song is from the very fine 1991 album: "Two Rooms: Celebrating The Songs Of Elton John & Bernie Taupin" which is really good.

And yes, the Kate Bush version is pretty good too.

We heard it. I've always liked it, but my husband had never heard it before. He thought it better than the original.

Saturday used to be my R2 day then Lesley Douglas set about dismantling it for me, mind you she also dismantled Mon-Fri for me Sad And Bob Shennan seems to be continuing the process. Very sad Crying or Very sad

Because, with the exception of JW (which I listen to later in the week) it's all crap. Planet Rock and Radio Caroline are infinitely better.

Kate's version of Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing is pretty good as well, have a listen on Spotify.

Bravo to Michael Ball for playing Kate's version of Rocket Man!

I've heard her version of Sexual Healing - in my humble opinion they should have made this and King Of The Mountain a 3-track EP with Lyra as an addition, but what do I know!
