In memory of David Bowie on this his birthday and in memory of Freddie Mercury who’s music keeps on rocking our lives.
Something a little different in The Quote Of The Day, the lyrics of Under Pressure as sung by Queen with David Bowie.
Today I am feeling the pressure from several directions. Queen featuring the late David Bowie sings for me today. Pressure sucks!
This David Bowie classic is for all those who are going through changes in life. Hang in there good people. Change is constant. It’s also tough but you are tougher.
When your generations superstars begin to pass into eternity you begin to think about your own mortality. We are here for a time on this place called Earth and we must make the most of it. The music of our times is the soundtrack of our lives and it is the artist, the freak, the geek, the eccentric that creates that sound. I am grateful to every person who dared to dream and to make the world a better place. We can be heroes if we dare to go crazy.
This song was featured in the movie “The Martian” which added a great touch to the story. Many are still celebrating the life of David Bowie so it seems appropriate.
In a week where we have lost David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Dan Haggerty another person lost her husband and brother. Celine Dion has had a very tragic few days having suffered two major losses. Recently we lost Natalie Cole as well. At any rate there’s been too much loss for such a young year. 2016 isn’t going very well for many. Be grateful for what you have for as long as you have it.
For geeks this week’s been sad.
