Are you sure about that as a Kate Bush Forum recons its to do with Emily Bronte who was author of the novel Wuthering Heights - her first single. Also on run out section of the single it is also inscribed 'Thank You Emily'

really???

any source for this?

theres nothing in the lyrics to "decry" EMI i would have though.

also, EMI were operating as "columbia records" in the UK up until 1973, 6 year after see emily play was released.
