1978
Two music videos with similar choreography were made to accompany "Wuthering Heights." Bush created the choreography and dance moves to suggest her character is a ghost (as in this scene in the novel), without explicitly stating as such. In the first version, made for the UK and European release, Bush is shown performing the song in a dark room filled with white mist while wearing a white dress.

The video's opening scene is one of the most memorable in music history and is the first thing most people picture when they think of the band. It took only four hours to film the video and five to edit it - it was shipped to BBC for air that same week.

Mick Rock filmed and directed a promotional video backstage at Earl's Court, on 12 May 1973, to accompany the release of the song as a single. It features a heavily made-up Bowie performing the song solo against a white backdrop, in a turquoise "ice-blue" suit designed by Freddi Buretti.
