100 Cover Versions: #2: Gemma Hayes covers 'Cloudbusting' by Kate Bush

Cloudbusting was the second single released from Kate Bush's 1985 album Hounds of Love. It got to number 20 in the UK singles chart and number 13 here in Ireland. It will forever be regarded as one of her greatest songs. Any cover of the song has to be respectful but also not be an exact imitation. There have been several cover versions of the song since it's release in 1985. One of the most successful versions is by Irish singer Gemma Hayes.

Here is a live version of Cloudbusting as performed by Gemma Hayes which was recorded in 2009.
