Ashes to Ashes - Funk to Funky

It was Bowie who led me on the path to my eclectic taste in music, having grown up with standard verse/chorus/bridge songs.  Yes, he did enough of those too but my mind did a flip on hearing the hypnotic opening strains of 'Five Years' on the Ziggy album.  My first thoughts were "This guy can't sing and doesn't even put all of the notes in the right order" and then BAM - lying on the floor with my portable record player, a speaker set on each side of my head - the magic began to flow. *Ashes to ashes, Funk to funky* ... and Station to Station, my friend. May your next stop be Heaven. R.I.P


  1. Nicely put. One more music legend among a sky full of stars.

  2. No doubt you'll get to hear "Lazarus", from the new album, soon.

    Look up here, I’m in heaven
    I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
    I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
    Everybody knows me now
