Video Vendredi - Hindsight: Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights"

"Hindsight: Noun, Recognition of the realities, possibilities, or requirements of a situation, event, decision etc., after its occurrence."
This segment is all about looking back on the things in pop culture, beauty, or fashion that we kind of regret; the sorts of things that leave us wondering why we ever thought they were cool. One of the richest sources for these sorts of flashbacks is the music video. Some of the coolest videos from ten or twenty years ago seem ludicrous to us today. Sometimes, too, the videos are just plain bad - like this one:

The song is based on Emily Brontë's only novel, Wuthering Heights. Actually, you know what this video really needs? No, not a lower key or a choreographer, it just needs a costume change and to be set in the woods. Oh wait.

Yeah, I don't know what they were thinking, either. Have a great weekend, readers!


  1. No, I love both videos, especially the red dress version! It is a fantastic song as well, real classic. And I'm 13, it doesn't seem old fashioned or embarrassing to me.

  2. You have every right to your opinion, reader! Keep in mind you're seeing it for the first time. Someone of, say, our parents' generation might see it differently. Thanks for stopping by!
