But every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out--
Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.
The Utah Saints' 1992 British hit single "Something Good" is built around a sample of Kate's voice, the line "Ooh, I just know that something good is going to happen." Part of the efflorescence of house music in the late Thatcher and early Major eras, the first big hit singles of the Utah Saints did feature vocal samples taken from the previous decade of British hit singers. I can't speak as to what has been done with these other songs, but Kate Bush's vocals the Utah Saints make just another sample, the "Ooh, I" portion reduced to a level almost as abstract as any synthesized melody. They've been likened to the KLF, and when I listened to the KLF and their album The White Room I noticed them playing with the same sort of abstraction at the level of their total performance.
I'm not sure about the artistic merits of "Something Good," if only because of the great yawning gap between that song and "Cloudbusting." The beats are quicker, the song's opened by guitar, crowd noise is spliced in, the song seems to get faster and faster as it speeds towards its end 3m29s after it began. I do know that I like it. There's something sublime about its simplicity, I'm sure.
