Jamie alerted me to a great cover of one of my favorite Kate Bush songs, "This Woman's Work" done by Maxwell

We commemorate birthdays a lot on the Shadow and occasionally mark an important death anniversary. What Jamie H. likely didn’t know was that they were suggesting both. Kate Bush celebrated a birthday July 30th and last week marked the 7th anniversary (August 6th) of the passing of filmmaker John Hughes. How are the two related, you ask? Well, the Kate Bush song “This Woman’s Work” was a crucial music cue in the Hughes film “She’s Having A Baby”.  And we get a great cover from Maxwell.

The Kate Bush original.

And Maxwell’s cover.
