Stuart Maconie: "Which of your old songs make you wince?"

Kate Bush: "My God, loads. Absolutely loads. Either the lyric's not thought out properly or it's just crap or the performances weren't well executed. But you have to get it in context. You were doing it at the time and it was the best you could do then. You've got to live with it. Some of those early songs, though, you think, 'What was I *thinking* about? Did *I* write that?'"

SM: "Like what?"

KB: "I can't name one. There's not just one. There were too many to mention. But I was very young, so I can be gentle on myself for that."

SM: "As someone who's written a very stirring song about England (Oh England My Lionheart), will you always be happiest here?"

KB (Astonished): "Do you like that one? That's one of the ones I meant. It makes me just want to die. There's just something about that time. It's such an old song. Oh god, I haven't heard it for so long. Must have been on tour in 1979."

So - just for Kate....
