Music sample

"Strange Phenomena" is a song written and recorded by Kate Bush. It was released as a single only in Brazil in June 1979 and was the sixth and final single from the album The Kick Inside.[1]

"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.[2]

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.[3]
