Ready to travel to new dimensions? Maybe even be a daring time traveler? Then you can be with a discussion of this week’s song, an album track from The Unknown Soldier, by British folk artist Roy Harper, called You (The Game Part II)! Kate and an old family friend, a certain David Gilmour, pop up on this song, her on vocals, and David on guitar. A champion of his music, Kate Bush lent her vocals to this album track after Roy sang on her song Breathing. Later she would contribute vocals to another album track, Once, from Roy’s album of the same name from 1989.
Never released as a single, You features Kate prominently on the first verse, background vocals on the choruses, and in the background on the fourth verse and singing the second to last line of that same verse. If you ever wanted to hear what Pink Floyd might’ve sounded like with Kate as the lead singer, then you’ll definitely want to listen to this song!
