A stunning rendition of Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights that is one of these day's YouTube's sensations. Meet the incredible voice of Michael Mills:
For the love of all that is holy (i.e. for the love of Kate Bush), this dude singing "Wuthering Heights" in its original key is one of the most beautiful things you will ever EVER witness. It's haunting, it's stunning, it's everything a Kate Bush fan could possibly dream of beyond dancing in a field with Kate Bush herself.  (Madeleine Davies on Jezabel)
One of the most covered songs of all time has now been done properly. In an act of captivatingly unnatural vocal talent, Melbourne prog band Toehider’s frontman Michael Mills has performed Kate Bush‘s 1978 hit song Wuthering Heights in its original (very, very high) vocal key.
“I can only do it once, so you know this is going to be a first take,” Mills admits straight off the bat, comparing himself to cartoon character Daffy Duck and his dangerous, one-time-only attempt to win a talent show.
In the cover, Mills manages to work in a short but sweet guitar solo and even blesses us with a few Kate Bush dance-moves and crazy eyes as well. Unlike Daffy’s effort, there’s no way that you’ll only watch it once.
The YouTube clip, which you can view below alongside Bush’s original, has amassed over 130,000 views in only two days, thanks in no small part to its popularity on internet community Reddit. (Tom Williams on Music Feeds)
