Black Star (Song Lyric Sunday)

I’ve been threatening to load some of Bowie’s later music and today’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt yelled out BlackStar.  IMO this video is such a stunning piece of visual art, […]

A Better Future is a track from Bowie’s 2002 Album, Heathen. Bowie denied that any of the album’s songs were written after September 2001, though he admitted that the songs […]

Changes (Song Lyric Sunday + Blogtober #31)

The Saxophone Player’s wife has posted prompts throughout October which has helped me change my sporadic posting regime. Today’s prompt is ‘what we learnt in 2020’ – Thanks Caroline! To […]

Peaches – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Get To This – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Golden Years – (Song Lyric Sunday)

I have gone with another Bowie track, with tongue slightly in my cheek, given our current global position – however, there is always room for hope don’t you think? Musically, […]

Cherry Oh Baby – (Song Lyric Sunday)

I’ve gone with a cover of Eric Donaldson’s 1971 song by reggae group from England UB40. It’s on their 1983 album Labour Of Love. Feels like one of those ‘defining’ coming […]

Moonage Daydream – (Song Lyric Sunday)
