‘Spot light on a Song’
Friday forethoughts today music fans. And a tribute. To David Bowie of course. Watching and reading the worlds reaction to his death has been powerful. Sad for his loss. Angry for his illness. Emotions flying all over the place. Hard to articulate. I’m not sure I need to much. Other than to say Bowie’s impact was enormous; he changed the nature of rock music, and changed his own approach repeatedly. He is an inspiration to the world in inconceivable ways. He left us with his legacy and a farewell album even at the final hour. A man who lived his life with intention to his beliefs of self expression.
A fitting and similar message to my first song release on my upcoming album coming out next week. ‘You never know’. The importance of expressing love to those who are here today. In light of all the seamless acts that go on around us daily; and the ones that just randomly happen. Every day is a gift. And sometimes we forget.
“As the World Falls Down” is a song written by David Bowie in 1986 for the soundtrack of the film Labyrinth. Its magnitude of beauty goes unspoken. I was touched by this particular version, sung by a very talented friend. Whose love for David Bowie had great significance in her life. I actually thought of Sara the moment I heard the news of Bowie’s passing. And could feel her sadness.
Farewell to one of the best. As Michael Stipe said so eloquently: “I am certain that wherever Bowie is now- I want to be there someday.”
