Son Of Stars

You are…

An Enigma

You are

A coin toss in the night

Your roots…

Do not belong here

Your light

Unmeant or known beyond you

Some say we’re lucky…

But I know better

Suave Hair…

Perfect… Sweater

You are grace

You are a friend

A source…

That never ends

You are beautiful

Rivaling the stars…

Magic

Jupiter and Mars

Pin drop silence

Captured breath

You’re larger than life…

Amongst muggy death

You are my friend…

I hold you dear

Take my hand…

Hear the rain

Powder blue moonlight…

Spread throughout

Electric…

Royalty

Your shadowy, light

Reign

Everything changes…

Hope pulls from light

Heart beats rapidly

Can you call this…

Fright

I am alone

They say we all are…

But we’re not

We never were

I’m sorry for our loss…

Sorry for heavens gain

Sorry I didn’t meet you

Have a handshake

Exchange names

It takes time…

Or so they say

But hasn’t time taken enough…

I need this day

The Rest Is Silence

“How do you capture a Moon Beam… You Don’t”

DAVID BOWIE

1947 – Four Days Ago

We All Grieve In Our Own Way

I recently joined Instagram, and that’s where I found out that David Bowie had passed

freddybowie

I was like… Loss? What are they talking about… So I clicked it

Bowie had just Released a New Album on Friday, January 8th (Also His Birthday), so I was totally confused by the Tweet, until I checked it out…

I immediately started crying… And pretty much couldn’t stop for the next hour

Ironically he’s in a Photo with Freddy Mercury in the Tweet, who was, and is my all time Favorite Vocalist… However, David Bowie was my Second Favorite Vocalist…

And beyond that… They’re both ‘beyond human’ to me… Truly ‘timeless’… ‘Enigmatic’… More than words can say actually

bowie-red-hairMy Personal Relationship (Meaning when he became important to me), was in the 80’s

In 1981 with Freddy

And 1983 with the “Lets Dance” Album

lets dance

 

 

He also starred in a Movie that my Brother and I both really liked

merryAnd in 1986, “Labyrinth”

labyrinth-1986-posterHe was Amazing in “Labyrinth”… Magical… Alluring… And Hilarious… He was Bowie

This one below is one of my Favorite Bowie Songs

But in truth, the more years that went by, the more important, and meaningful David Bowie became to me… Not because of any new Music, but rather I came to realize more and more how Iconic and Amazing he is

At one point I heard he owned a Bank… Maybe he did

The thing is, I’m not a ‘traditional fan’ of anyone really… When people mean something to me, I keep it in the inside mostly… No posters on the wall… Or constant focus on them… Mostly when I catch wind of something about them, or come across a piece of their work, part of me just pauses… And appreciates… Such was the relationship with Bowie over the last 30 years

He became a Mystery to me really…

And I always hoped he’d reemerge… In fact, I was so excited about the New Album… Not for the Music… But more to Hear and See him more again in our Society

But to be honest, all of that was Dashed away when I found out the news

And for the first time in my Life, I find myself wanting Posters of him… I created a David Bowie Pandora Channel, and have been listening to it

There is a whole world that I don’t know about him from the late 80’s to now… And before the 80’s, there are songs that I love by him, but I never really owned any of them… And so sadly, as he leaves, I will begin my Journey into his last 30 years… And his life prior to the 80’s

This is one of my all time favorite songs by Bowie Below

I’m not really sure this post truly conveys how much he means to me… He’s truly one of the most important human beings in my life

Not, like I say, in the traditional ‘super fan’ way… But more as an Artist, and Human Being

I am truly saddened, and changed by his departure

Though he will always be with me… People don’t really die for me… I think of it as more of a loss at a chance to actually meat them, and tell them what they mean to me

God Speed Bowie…

Now cracks a noble heart. Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

(Horatio To Hamlet)

DarkJade Presents – Some 80’s Songs

Yes, I was a Teenager in the 80’s… It’s True

Back when Plastic Clothing, and Large Hair was not only Acceptable… It was Expected, Lol

Ok, so I never owned any Plastic Pants, but I did partake in a lot of the 80’s Music…

I will say this about the 80’s, it was a Fun Time to be a Teenager

Nuff Said, Some 80’s Songs

A-Ha – Take On Me (Was going to buy this Album for a Girl I liked when I was a Teenager… Sadly I lost my Wallet with all my Money in it on the way to her house, Lol… Either that, or “She Stole It!!” Sadly, it was most likely the latter… But what did I know… Not much, Lol

 

 

George Michael – Careless Whisper (I actually liked George Michael’s Songs later than when they were out, Lol)

 

 

Madonna – Lucky Star (This is the Song I liked most by Madonna… I stuck with her through her “Like a Virgin” Album, but after that, meh… She’s made a lot of good music beyond the 80’s, but when “Lucky Star” was out, I was definitely a Fan)

 

 

Thompson Twins – Doctor Doctor (Loved Thompson Twins… Even saw them in Concert, Lol… A Band called O.M.D. opened for them, Liked them even better)

 

 

OMD (Orchestral Maneuvers In The Dark) – So In Love (I think this is the Song I really Liked by them, Lol)

 

 

The Human League – Don’t You Want Me Baby (Can’t remember if I liked this song, but I sure heard it alot, Lol)

 

 

REO Speedwagon – Keep On Loving you

 

 

I Want To Know What Love Is – Foreigner (This is pretty much my Favorite All Time Romantic Song from the 80’s… Yes I was a Romantic, even when I was a teenager, Lol)

 

 

A Flock Of Seagulls – I Ran (Yes, I liked this song before it was ever used in a Violent Video Game, Ha)

 

 

Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams (I thought Annie was the Sh#@$… And I still do, Lol)

 

 

Under Pressure – Queen/Freddy Mercury and David Bowie (Two of my All Time Favorite Singers Ever Together, not much Better)

 

 

Cyndi Lauper – Time After Time (Loved Cyndi Lauper, This One, True Colors and She Bop, Lol)

 

 

I Think This is Enough For Now, Lol

Wait, One More, Lol

Michael Jackson – Billie Jean (My Favorite All Time Michael Jackson Song, Loved Him Back Then)

 

 

Thanks for Listening

Weird By Any Other Name, Sounds Just As Sweet…

Shirley Manson – Garbage – You Look So Fine

I’m the first to say some of the “Oddest” Musicians, are some of the Sexiest and Coolest

David Bowie – Let’s Dance

No One Odder… No One Cooler

The Guy has such a great Voice, I always felt if he had someone else Write his Music, he’d be unbelievable… But this song is one of the Exceptions, just Close yours and Listen to it

Robert Smith – The Cure – Pictures of You

One of my all time Favorite Cure Songs. There Music was Exceptional, and There Singer, well lets just say if Eye Liner was Candy, this Guy would have some Rotten Teeth, lol

Freddy Mercury – Queen – We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions

Ok, maybe there’s one guy that’s Odder than Bowie… The King or Queen as it were of More Than Rock N Roll, Freddy Mercury… His Voice is simply My Favorite of all Time… God Bless yah man, you F#@#’n Rule!

Lets Go Ahead and End This on Someone Whose Not Known as a Musician, but Still Found His Weird/Great/Cool Place in Musical History

Tim Curry – Rocky Horror Picture Show – Sweet Transvestite

Tim Curry’s Defining Moment, the guy is Just Awesome

Thanks For Chillen for a bit, have a Great Weekend
