Wuthering Chart Heights!



Boosh fandom has gone into meltdown a little over last night’s sensational performance from Noel Fielding on Let’s Dance… for Comic Relief.

We at TVO are going to be getting behind Noel’s chances of winning the competition with a series of posts across the next two weeks around him, the song, the dance and Comic Relief as a whole.  Whilst we don’t want to lose sight of our real mandate of providing you top rate news from the Booshniverse, we nevertheless feel this is an incredibly worthy cause which can generate a huge amount of money for the charity, and in our own small way, we’d like to help in the Booshiest way possible!

The first idea we’ve had involves the song in question: Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush.  Kate sent a message of support to Noel on last night’s show, and is a great supporter of charities and of comedy, memorably appearing in episodes of seminal series The Comic Strip in the early 1990s.

What better way to publicly show your support for Noel than to buy Wuthering Heights this week from iTunes, Amazon, Play, HMV or any other online service?  The track will cost no more than 99p, and if enough of us download it, we could guarantee a chart placing next Sunday – meaning the song will be riding high in the charts when Noel returns for the grand final on March 12th.  For Kate Bush fans, this also provides a perfect opportunity to get this extremely talented singer back in the charts once more.

It’s a great song, by a great singer, supporting a great man doing a great thing for a great charity.  Have we said its great enough yet?  Join us!

  1. Firstly, wasn’t Noel AMAZING!!! I must’ve rewatched it about 10 times on Youtube already and I will be downloading as soon as I get paid this week xD

    And, if perchance Noel might see this, I have one question…Will you marry me, I do love you so much and I can’t help but swoon when I see you dancing. You are a magical man who can look sexy, even as a woman 😉


  2. OMG this clip turned me into a 13 year old again. Wasn’t the cover amazing? And wasn’t she? I am going to download and fall in love with the track all over again. With you guys behind this project it is sure to do well!


  3. Rightfully downloaded. 🙂 Last night’s performance was fantastic. The boy did good. Very bloody good. Now it’s just a case of crossing our fingers and toes for the final. Well done, Noel. 🙂


  4. Ey, smart 🙂 Just followed your “orders” and downloaded the album. Wow, nostalgia… ❤

    I sometimes regret deleting my facebook account. I would have shared it like a ninja 😛 And even my headbanging Harley Davidson driving friends (…) would fall for it's beauty xD

    Naw, I'm gonna have Wuthering Heights as my ringtone *wee*
