Respectful Insolence

David Bowie lyric of the day

i-2dec6068154fe4883e2c17bbcd16824f-Diamond.jpg

He’ll build a glass asylum
With just a hint of mayhem
He’ll build a better whirlpool
We’ll be living from sin, then we can really begin

Please savior, saviour, show us
Hear me, I’m graphically yours

Someone to claim us, someone to follow
Someone to shame us, some brave Apollo
Someone to fool us, someone like you

We want you Big Brother

Song: Big Brother. Album: Diamond Dogs (1974)

Why this song?

Given what’s going in over the last few years, you have to ask?

    I only have DB, and DD in particular, on vinyl LP, and for the last few months have been thinking about getting CDs for all my old Bowie albums.

    Now you’ve done it! I don’t need any reminders of what it sounds like, I know, but dang! I love that album. I also like Scary Monsters.

    I had a most unexpected surprise for Christmas this year: My wife got me a new turntable so I could actually play the hundreds of vinyl albums I’ve kept around since the 70’s and 80’s. My eight-yr-old is getting a kick out of listening to Daddy’s music.

    This ain’t rock and roll…this is genocide!
