"Strange Phenomena" is a song written and recorded by Kate Bush. It was only released as a single in Brazil in mid-1979 and was the sixth and final single from the album The Kick Inside.

"Strange Phenomena" speaks about déjà vu, synchronicity and how coincidences sometimes cluster together in seemingly meaningful ways. It has been described as "a frank paean to menstruation" by The Guardian.[1]

This, and a number of other early Brazilian singles, were pressed at 33.3 rpm. Brazil is one of few countries that released singles at this speed, along with Argentina.[2]
