C is for Cloudbusting

'Cloudbusting' is the story of psychologist and philosopher Wilhelm Reich, as revealed through a book written by his son. Peter Reich's 1973 biography entitled 'A Book of Dreams' was picked up by Kate and used as the basis for this song. The song is written through the eyes of the young Peter, looking at his father and their relationship. And his father had a machine that could make it rain....

This was the second single released from 'Hounds of Love' (1985).
