Planet Earth is Blue


I was up early and driving to a business meeting this morning, and the guy on the radio news told me David Bowie had died. The Prettiest Star

I don't expect mine is the only blog post about that today, but I haven't read anyone else's yet. I heard a lot of tributes on the radio though as I was driving about today. I don't think I would ever have said he was my very favourite artist, but I have listened to his music a lot, I absolutely love quite a few of his songs, and I did feel very sad. I nearly had tears in my eyes a couple of times.

Turn and face the strain………

I suppose how you feel about his death might have something to do with your age. I first heard "Starman" when I was about thirteen, and soon after discovered most of his other early stuff and at that age it all made a deep impression. On my personal feelings and on me as a wannabe musician. The thing about Bowie is that he probably did that to more than one generation.

If we can sparkle he may land tonight………

His songs always tell you something about life and how to live it, how to grow up when your parents don’t understand what being a is like these days, how to be yourself and how to make your own stand when you feel a bit different from everyone else.

But her friend is nowhere to be seen, now she walks through her sunken dream………….

And as a musician, all his best songs sound as if have always been there; they go just how you would expect them to go, just how anyone else would have written them, if only they could have. Except that you find you can’t write anything like them at all. They are full of unexpected chord changes and melodies, lyrics which seem to be about nothing on earth. You just kind of feel what it is that he means, somewhere in your subconscious, even if on the surface you don’t think you understand them.

Here am I floating round my tin can…..

I know this isn’t a music site, but this is where I blog. And music, especially the music you hear when you are growing up, is all bound up with sex and love and emotions and that’s why I come here. Anyway, I have used David Bowie lyrics to express myself on my blog several times, including one quite recently, so I wanted just to say hello to everyone who suddenly feels somehow a bit off centre today, and to join you in thanks for all the amazing songs he gave us over the years, and think how, as it always when someone you have listened to dies, life won’t quite ever be exactly the same again.

I have often used music lyrics in my blog.....somehow they convey much more than words.

I too was very upset to hear of his death. He was an artistic genius and his music has been with me for almost all of my adult life. R.I.P.

It's a very sad day for everyone his music touched, and there are scores of us. I'm Afraid of Americans and The Man Who Ruled the World were always two of my favorites, but there were so many.

RIP Starman.

You want to stop the flame from burning. I just want to let it go...

Thanks Wild. Being reminded that you are out there always makes everything seem better than it was. I love the Man Who Ruled the World too, but.....I don't think I have heard "I'm Afraid of Americans." I will have to look that up, so there is a treat for me!

Yes, great lyrics. I remember seeing an interview with him in which he pointed out that it wasn't necessarily what his lyrics meant which mattered, but what they sounded like. But for us, it is what they sound like which carries the meaning.
