BumbleBee Brunch Playlist: 6/17/2022

Friday's BumbleBee Brunch show previewed a number of Boston artists playing next week's benefit show for the women and children of Ukraine at Magic Room in Norwood. We very much hope you can join us for one or BOTH nights at a wonderful venue just off the Norwood Automile (Rte 1.) Tons of FREE parking means you won't waste a minute driving around in circles looking for a space! We played tunes from Smitt E. Smitty & The Feztones, Key Of Caustic, Baabes, Field Day, and Modern Day Idols. Click HERE for more info and tickets for the upcoming shows on Friday 6/24 and Saturday 6/25!

The Friday Brunch also saw new Boston music from Speedfossil with another track off their great LP, "No Anesthesia" and brand NEW music from Sunshine Riot ahead of their September EP, "Sparkle Baby 2000." There were numerous contributions from Great Britain and Dublin, Ireland on the show. Oldest tune of the day came from Joy Division as their "Unknown Pleasures" LP turned 43 this past week. If you get the chance to grab the 40th-anniversary remastered vinyl edition of the album it's well worth it!

Anyone that knows me well knows that I'm an absolute Kate Bush fanatic. It was back in 1985 that I first heard "Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God") played on Cape Cod's Top-40 radio station for the first time and became a mega-fan of her work. The song's stay on the radio was brief as it peaked at #30 on the Billboard Hot-100 and then vanished from the airwaves here in America. I had a trail of fire behind me as I raced into Side One Records in Hyannis, Massachusetts and snapped-up the 45-RPM single of the tune (which I still have to this day.) In Great Britain Kate Bush to this day is a near-deity. When she announced a 22-show residency at The Hammersmith Apollo Theatre in London in 2014 (her first live performances since 1979) all 22-shows sold-out in under 15-minutes with several websites crashing as a result of the mad-scramble for tickets. This year the newest season of the smash-hit Netflix TV series "Stranger Things" included "Running Up That Hill" in an episode and magic followed. As of this week the song has reached #1 on the UK charts, but more amazingly has climbed to #4 on the Billboard Hot-100 here in the United States 37-YEARS after its release!

Now that everyone is focused on Kate Bush, I thought this was a wonderful opportunity to introduce you to some more of her amazing catalog of music. "Running Up That Hill" comes from the 1985 "Hounds Of Love" LP. I opted for another tune from the album "Cloudbusting." Check-out this music video for the song starring Kate Bush and actor Donald Sutherland!
