    I love the recurrence of the "Little light..." lyric in the beginning.

    I hear an influence on Current 93, NWW, Coil and Skinny Puppy, in that order on this track.

    The beginning of this song is the most calming thing in the world. [3]

    one night I was listening to Hounds of Love in bed, and I was half asleep when this song started, it felt like some lucid nightmare. traumatizing.

    The beginning with all the voices sounds like depression.

    I remember being in a music store (remember those) in 1985. The staff put this song on the sound system. At the 1:19 mark - a quiet track went WHAM! And at 1:38, the modulation made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. That was my introduction to the brilliant Kate Bush.

    The beginning of this always reminded me of the scene in the BFG film when it's nighttime at the orphanage.

    The beginning is just breathtaking. And then comes the rest - surprising, terrifying, gorgeous.

    I like the bells in this song that ended up being kind of a "preview" to the start of The Sensual World
