…and I was 8.

This clip is firmly entrenched in my memory from Countdown:

As a little kid, I thought Kate Bush was totally freaky. (But good.)

    oh ta for posting the Kate Bush clip. Have not seen it in years and seeing it for the first time when I was 7 is just such a vivid memory. It started me on my path of love of the Brontes because I wanted to know what she was singing about. That’s made my day seeing that.

    wow, they don’t make video clips like they used to! Today that clip would be shot through with scenes from a Bronte Blockbuster.

    I remember the seventies, if not especially the year 1978, when I was 10. Oh, the plaid highwater pants, oh the hollyhobby dress with sunbonnet my mom made me and my sister, oh how I loved Trixie Belden books and hanging with my best freind listening to her mom’s Buddy Holly and the Crickets records…heh, remember when music was either on the radio or actually on records. Thanks for the flashback.
