Paranormal experiences series: The original version of Wuthering Heights or what the…

The Kick Inside

I’ve found that my as I get older, I find it easier to forget things. This is mostly because there is so much information coming in now that it’s just not possible to retain it all. It’s as though everyday has a heap of new things that I should remember, but I can’t because something else comes in right away after to remember, too.

Still, I’ve found that my childhood memories, especially when it comes to music, are still very strong and accurate.

Music is how I time stamp my memories. Songs will bring back feelings and emotions of the time, and often bring tears to my eyes.

So, when an anomaly turns up, I sit up and take notice.

I’ve already discussed the Say My Name incident, and how somehow it was a different artist singing that song, or at least to my memory.  And while I’m prepared to say that I was simply wrong, it does bring up a similar incident that happened back in the mid to late 70s.

Before going to sleep, as a preteen, I would listen to the radio, and the songs I heard back then remain in my memory to this day, even the obscure ones that no one else seems to remember nowadays.

One song I recall, though for no particular reason, was Wuthering Height.  Like most songs at the time, it was just there, with no real attraction. I didn’t hate it, but wouldn’t have gone out of my way to get it. Not that I could afford to buy any records back in those days anyway.

In 1978, Kate Bush released her first single, Wuthering Height, and I thought to myself, at the time, I prefer the original version and I said as much.

The version I knew was sung by a female artist who had a much lower voice, which was reminiscent of someone like Karen Carpenter. Unfortunately, I don’t know who sang that  particular version.

Over the years, in the back of my mind, I resolved that one day I was going to look that version up, and get hold of it.

Sometimes it takes a few decades for me to get around to doing something (seriously!) and one day in the noughties, I decided to finally do it.

However, I soon found that it wasn’t possible.

The problem was that there was no original version. Kate Bush had written this song in 1977, and she was the original artists.

I’ve checked this fact a number of times, wondering if I had got my information wrong somewhere, but it is correct.  There was definitely no version of that song before Bush.

To hear a song that does not exist, several years before it is released raises some interesting question. The biggest one being: How?

Still, one can be forgiven for thinking that maybe I was mistaken or have a faulty memory (though, as I said, my memory of music is uncannily clear from my childhood.)

Even if I did agree with you, this was not the only thing of that nature that occurred.

Next: The road alongside Hanging Rock.

    For some reason I always associate that song with 1974 . I checked Wikipedia which says that she made the song when she was 16. And released it a year later.She was born in 58. I checked Imdb and it is listed as being released in 1978. It is possible she has released it twice but I always think of that song being earlier than 1978. Pat benatar did a cover of it but not sure when it was released. But you have inspired me to investigate further.

      Well, 74 is the time when i first heard it, and I’ve checked into this a number of time and no, it did not hit the airwaves until 78. Pat Benetar didn’t appear until around the early 80s. (I know my music lol)

      So it’s awesome that someone else seems to have the recollection that I do on this song!

        Hi, just checked with tarot cards. The Question was “did kate bush sing this song in an alternate reality in 74? The first card was the sun,second was the knight of wands and the third was the hermit.
        All cards were upright ,meaning that the song did exist in1974 in an alternate reality.

          Okay, that just gave me a creepy feeling. Not sure how to read tarot myself, but will take your word on it.

          One thing I know is that it’s one thing to know something conceptually, it’s another thing to actually experience it.

        Nonsense. You didn’t hear it in 74 .

    From my experiences, I ‘feel’ that history rewrites itself, I’ve just never fathomed out why. I read a book many years ago that put forward the theory that nothing existed prior to Victorian times, everything we know has been implanted in our memories, but I’ve never been able to find the book again. If there is one big matrix program running, as with any system, it’s bound to get glitches now and then and leak information out before it’s due to be released, or maybe get a virus and corrupt the memories you have. I’ve got a big thought forming on this, but the idea isn’t quite all there yet, just put your empathic mind out there, and let the universe give you the answers 🙂

      Thanks and good thoughts. I actually do have an answer, and I will get into that as further experiences unfold. Though, the answer will seem a little ‘out there’. On the other hand, if you’re following this blog, you’l probably already expect that. lol
