Kate Bush’s hit song chosen for the official playlist of King Charles III’s Coronation | music | entertainment

Kate Bush achieved major success for the first time in 45 years when she topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single Wuthering Heights, making her the first artist to do so with a self-written track. And now, the 64-year-old, who was appointed central banker by the late Queen in 2013, has been honored by having one of her biggest songs featured in the official playlist to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III on Spotify.

Last year, That Hill topped the charts in eight countries, including the United Kingdom for three consecutive weeks, Ireland for seven weeks, and Australia for nine non-consecutive weeks. It also reached a new peak of number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 2022.

Bush wrote the single in just one night at home and has said the lyrics speak of men and women’s inability to understand each other. The track explores the idea of ​​the two sexes making a “deal with God” to swap places and better understand each other. In fact, A Deal with God was the song’s original title, but EMI Records worried that the song would make the song unpopular in more religious countries.
