Kate Bush forced to deny that 'Hounds of Love' is about the glory of fascist dictatorship

KATE Bush been forced to deny that one of her biggest hits is about the advantages of a one-party, fascist state.

Bush insisted Hounds of Love was not about a glorious military government with an aggressively expansionist foreign policy.

The singer added: “I don't really know what it's about. Some big dogs, I suppose.

“Understandably, people do get confused because songs like Wuthering Heights and Running Up That Hill are obviously about abolishing press freedom and reinstating traditional gender roles by force. But I like to explore different concepts.”

Meanwhile, Bush's fans stressed they would continue to support whatever political ideology she told them to.

Fan Joseph Turner said: “Babooshka, Babooshka, Babooshka, ya-ya.”
