Here in the studio, we discuss a rather obscure Kate Bush song, Scares Me Silly (But It Gets Me Going), a leaked studio track from The Kick Inside sessions. This song is the only leaked studio track from Kate’s entire career, an impressive feat for someone who’s written a lot of music (but who now owns her own studio, so who knows what other unreleased gems there might be!). In this episode, Cecilee and Andrew Linke discuss this interesting outtake, from the rather straightforward, not-terribly-Kate lyrics, to their own speculations about why this song might have been left off The Kick Inside and why this song was written in the first place.
