    Affecting song. Bet it means even more to Kate to sing it now, when she's a mum in her own right.

    I probably like this song more than everyone here - even the top listeners. Unlike most of these miscreant Pop-Jockey's, I actually loved my mother and understand what Kate Bush means when she says that a mother stands for comfort. I like to dance to this track believe it or not. I was kicked out of my best friends wedding reception because I put my burned disc in the DJ's player and started dancing like the wind was going out of style. We aren't friends anymore, but I do have a good relationship with my mother, and that, folks, is comforting.

    A great girl! 1 of the first in a long line of eccentric females. Had a great influence on many who came after.
