Wuthering Heights Lyrics
What it's about: Kate's nod to Emily Bronte's classic romance novel. (More specifically, the ending, where Cathy comes back as a spirit to claim Heathcliff's soul.)
Running time: 4:25
Babooshka Lyrics
What it's about: An insecure wife foolishly tests her husband's fidelity by disguising herself and attempting to seduce him. It's a look at our tendency to ruin things for ourselves.
Running time: 3:26
An edited version of Wuthering Heights was originally released in the US in 1978, backed with Kite. On this reissue, it's the full length LP mix coupled with Babooshka.
It is one of only two B-side appearances of Babooshka in the world. (The other is the Polish Army Dreamers single.)
It's also the only US appearance of Babooshka on 7" vinyl.
