S01E06 – Wuthering Heights

At last, we come to the song that started it all, the worldwide (except for the US) mega-hit Wuthering Heights. In this special episode, Cecilee and special guest, musician and Wuthering Heights fanatic Luke McQuillan, hope you’ll let them in at your window as they discuss this important song. Cecilee and Luke discuss the unusual chord progression, the massive popularity this song still has 40 years after it was written by chance on the night of a full moon, various cover versions, and the tragic story of Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw. Also, Luke and Cecilee talk about the first time they ever heard this song, which was their first exposure to Kate’s music.
