Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights"

When did this song first come out? Some time in the mid-'80s? At the time, I loved it, and I always remembered it as a very moving, spiritual song, about the darkest of literary lost loves...

I just now re-looked the song up on YouTube... and was appalled at how awful and jokey Kate Bush was. The intentionally freaky bug-eyes and waving of the hands. The whole video is stilted and silly. And messes up a great song. I'm surprised that I remembered it as being serious.
