''When I first read Wuthering Heights I thought the story was so strong. This young girl in an era when the female role was so inferior and she was coming out with this passionate, heavy stuff. Great subject matter for a song. I loved writing it. It was a real challenge to precis the whole mood of a book into such a short piece of prose.'' - Kate Bush
''It's so important to put yourself in the role of the person in a song. There's no half measures. When I sing that song I am Cathy.'' - Kate Bush
''Wuthering Heights'' is so important to me. It had to be the single. To me it was the only one. I had to fight off a few other people's opinions but in the end they agreed with me. I was amazed at the response though, truly overwhelmed.'' - Kate Bush
