MUSIC Sleeper hits

One of the most amazing things about music is the way it can thread in and out of public memory or fame, changing and adapting meaning over time while also maintaining a slice of the context in which it was made for future generations to enjoy.

It’s certainly great consolation for artists who release a song or an album and don’t receive the immediate feedback they were hoping for, as the possibility always remains for their music to reenter the pop culture conversation at any point in what’s called a “sleeper hit.” Kate Bush is the latest example, but there are so many others, so click through to see some of the slowest hits that climbed the charts way after their release.
