I was listening to this earlier as I was driving to the gym. It just pumps me up and fills me with euphoria. This is the kind of song that it's extremely difficult to listen to in the car and not speed. LOL!
while i was listening to that song, i found this on the same page!
i have never seen this before... so it was quite exciting to discover.
thought i would share it with you.
i used to have the old 7" 45 RPM single to "space oddity" way back in the 1970's and this song was on the B-Side. this live version, however, features Bowie and Nomi. i never knew they worked together, but it makes perfect sense.
i worked with bowie once, in 1997. i even met him. i said... "where would you like your mirror, mr. bowie" he said, "over there, thanks" and that was it.
he was nice enough to drop by the crew room after the show, just to pop his head in the door and say thanks to all of us. i do remember him as being a lot smaller than i had imagined.
anyway... the show blew me away, and i peaked (no drugs) during his performance of "fashion".
Like many here at MS I escaped into music (playing and listening) as a way of escaping the feelings (or lack there of) associated with csa. There are songs I remember from before the abuse that instantly make me feel good (oldies for sure) and others I associate with the time frame of the abuse that instantly make me feel sad, hurt, angry, depressed, or a combination of any or all.
I am very fortunate to have married a wonderful woman who is a survivor also and for the last several months since I disclosed to her we have been working through our healing together.
Here is a link to what has become our favorite song and reflects our feelings for one another, especially at this time in our lives. To those of you who have an understanding and supportive partner you'll appreciate it. To those who may not be blessed with such it may seem sappy and sentimental. Either way it is a great, soulful, blues masterpiece by two of the most talented performers around today. Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart--"I'll Take Care Of You".
For those of you who are familiar with JB, he is coming to the Bell Auditorium in Augusta, GA on November 20, 2013. This is a chance to see one of the greatest guitarists of all time in a relatively small venue, i.e there really are no bad seats. I have my tickets and if you're anywhere nearby you should get some too. It promises to be a fabulous show.
I don't ask for much, I only want trust, and you know it don't come easy. Ringo Starr
They flutter behind you, your possible pasts; Some bright-eyed and crazy, some frightened and lost... And strung out behind us the banners and flags of our possible pasts lie in tatters and rags. Roger Waters
