“Official music video for the single “Cloudbusting” written, produced and performed by the British singer Kate Bush. It was the second single released from her no.1 1985 album Hounds of Love. “Cloudbusting” peaked at no.20 in the UK Singles Chart. The music video, directed by Julian Doyle, was conceived by Terry Gilliam and Kate Bush. The video features Canadian actor Donald Sutherland playing the role of Wilhelm Reich, and Bush playing the part of his young son, Peter.”

My Favorite Songs About Anomalous Phenomena, UFOs and General Weirdness

The other day, I pointed out to a dear friend how British vocalist Kate Bush, beyond writing and singing songs about paranormal topics, is rumored to have been a real life “ufo investigator” over in Great Britain. We were discussing the Kate Bush songs Cloudbusting (based on a dream by Wilhelm Reich’s son) and Experiment IV which I was bringing up because of a recent news article on Israel’s use of supposedly non-lethal sound weapons for riot control. See sidebar below right …

While discussing Kate Bush’s inspiration for her Wilhelm Reich song, my friend discovered that both Kate Bush and Patti Smith are authors of songs inspired by Peter Reich’s A Book of Dreams. Patti Smith recorded a song called Birdland that is “about Wilhelm Reich coming back for his son in a UFO“.

Over the years all my friends with interest in subjects like UFOs, Aliens, Ghosts etc. have collected and shared a vast array of music archiving the various musical mileus that have been touched by the Saucers and their paranormal occupants. Compilations with names like The Saucers Singand Surely Nothing Human Could… From that huge collection of music memorabilia are a few of my favorites…

I still dream of orgonon
I wake up crying
You’re making rain
And you’re just in reach
When you and sleep escape me
You’re like my yo-yo
That glowed in the dark
What made it special
Made it dangerous
So I bury it
And forget
But every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen
And I don’t know when
But just saying it could even make it happen
On top of the world
Looking over the edge
You could see them coming
You looked too small
In their big, black car
To be a threat to the men in power
I hid my yo-yo
In the garden
I can’t hide you
From the government
Oh, god, daddy
I won’t forget
‘Cause every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
Ooh, I

Book Of The Week

Thieves in the Night: 
A Brief History of Supernatural Child Abductions

by Joshua Cutchin

“Folklore has always warned of hidden dangers lurking in the shadows, otherworldly beings who seek to steal that which parents hold most dear. In the first book dedicated solely to the subject, Joshua Cutchin traces this primal concern from antiquity to the modern era—beginning with worldwide tales of faeries, changelings, spirits, demons, and monsters, before examining more contemporary phenomena such as Sasquatch kidnappings, alien abductions, and mysterious disappearances in national parks. Folklore, medicine, science, and spirituality come together for a uniquely scholarly perspective on the thieves in the night.”
