  1. “The Dreaming” by Kate Bush By Anze Smalc

  2. Music Video Lyrics

  3. 'Bang!' goes another kangaOn the bonnet of the van."See the light ram through the gaps in the land."Many an Aborigine's mistaken for a tree'Til you near him on the motorwayAnd the tree begin to breathe."See the light ram through the gaps in the land." The opening lines set the tone and message of the song. The symbolic “Van” of western imperialist culture pelts natives indifferently. The song adopts a tone which matches the absurd and unfathomable nature of this violence

  4. Performers symbolically “pull” on beam of light connecting to man’s chest, symbolically embodying the extraction of natural resources (green light specifically referencing uranium) at the expense and to the detriment of native peoples

  5. “The Dreaming” features Rolf Harris, a notable British pop culture figure in his own right, playing the didgeridoo which has become iconically associated with him. It is a native Australian instrument, where he is from originally. Australia includes a displaced native population with which it has had a tenuous relationship and which has been exploited historically for natural resources

  6. "Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-A-a-a-a-a-M-m-m-m-m-Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-I-i-i-i-i-"Woomera."Me-me-me-me-me.""Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-A-a-a-a-a-M-m-m-m-m-Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-I-i-i-i-i-"Woomera."Me-me-me-me-me." ("Oh, re mikayina!") The almost indecipherable and haunting chorus, mixed with the rhythmic tribal sound percussion evokes the contemporary association with native cultures

  7. The association with native cultures is reinforced by the evocative dancing which skirts popular western rhythms and notions

  8. Differing considerably from the more pop oriented aesthetic and melody of her previous successful singles, “The Dreaming” was comparatively less successful, reaching 48 on the UK singles chart, and a meager 91 on the Australian singles chart
