A Post-Halloween Hangover Benediction

Kate Bush cut some decent tracks after her 1985 album Hounds of Love, but, to listen to this last song from that sweet masterpiece, you realize she never had a hope in hell of ever topping it.

There are many songs that are best played only at night. “The Morning Fog” is one of the rare few that is best heard first thing in the morning. At just over two and one-half minutes, the lovely Kate is never as lovely as she is here.

It’s perfect for the day after Halloween. You get the sense of something ending as well as beginning. Which it has. Which it is. Happy Pagan New Year!
