A Song of Summer

In celebration of the 56th birthday of British singer/songwriter Kate Bush, I share a track from her 1980 album Never For Ever. Appropriately, given this time of year, it’s “Delius (Song of Summer).”

About this track Wikipedia notes:

“Delius (Song of Summer)” was inspired by the 1968 Ken Russell TV movie Song of Summer, which portrays the last six years of the life of English composer Frederick Delius (1862-1934), when Eric Fenby acted as his amanuensis. Fenby is mentioned in the lyrics (“in B, Fenby”).
