Oh, You Pretty Things

David Bowie - Oh, You Pretty Things. Live from the BBC, 1972

 

Wake up you sleepy head
Put on some clothes, get out of bed
Put another log on the fire for me
I've made some breakfast and coffee
Look out my window and what do I see
A crack in the sky
and a hand reaching down to me
All the nightmares came today
And it looks as though they're
here to stay

 

What are we coming to
No room for me, no fun for you
I think about a world to come
Where the books were found by the Golden ones
Written in pain, written in awe
By a puzzled man who questioned
What we came here for
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

 

Oh You Pretty Things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and Papas insane
Oh You Pretty Things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and Papas insane
Let me make it plain
You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

 

Look at your children
See their faces in golden rays
Don't kid yourself they belong to you
They're the start of a coming race
The earth is a bitch
We've finished our news
Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

 

Oh You Pretty Things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and Papas insane
Oh You Pretty Things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and Papas insane
Let me say it again
You gotta make way for the Homo Superior

Life On Mars?

A canção de 1971, numa mistura de 2016, fará parte da antologia “Legacy (The Very Best Of)”, disponível dia 11. O marcante vídeo foi originalmente rodado pelo fotógrafo Mick Rock e conhece agora uma nova versão.

Our homage to the man whose ability to change whilst remaining himself has been a massive influence on us. There are many legends in the music industry but for us, there is no greater than the mighty Dave. We've included all things Bowie, whether that is original songs, covers, backing vocals, production work or reworks we made, to attempt to give you the full scope of the man's genius.

For the visual side to this mix our friend Wim Reygaert (who also made the amazing film for Into The Vortex) came up with the most ambitious film for RSWX, taking us on a fever dream time travel through the man's career starring the amazing Hannelore Knuts as Dave. We've got to extend a special thank you to the cast and crew and everyone involved for putting so much time and energy and heart and soul into this amazing film, it is a pure labour of love for the phenomenon that is Bowie.

Coisas Bowie.

David Bowie and the story of Ziggy Stardust

 

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars is arguably the most important album in the mind-blowing career of David Bowie. Released in 1972, it's the record that set the mercurial musician on course to becoming one of the best-known pop stars on the planet. In just over a year, Bowie's messianic Martian invaded the minds of the nation's youth with a killer combination of extraterrestrial rock 'n' roll and outrageous sexuality, all delivered in high-heeled boots, multi-coloured dresses and extravagant make-up. In Bowie's own words, Ziggy was 'a cross between Nijinsky and Woolworths', but this unlikely culture clash worked - Ziggy turned Bowie into stardust. This documentary tells the story of how Bowie arrived at one of the most iconic creations in the history of pop music. The songs, the hairstyles, the fashion and the theatrical stage presentation that merged together to turn David Bowie into the biggest craze since the Beatles. Ziggy's instant success gave the impression that he was the perfectly-planned pop star. But, as the film reveals, it had been a momentous struggle for David Bowie to hit on just the right formula that would take him to the top. Narrated by fan Jarvis Cocker, it reveals Bowie's mission to the stars through the musicians and colleagues who helped him in his unwavering quest for fame - a musical voyage that led Bowie to doubt his true identity, eventually forcing the sudden demise of his alien alter ego, Ziggy.

Thanks to Sam Seitz for his assist

Very special thanks to Andrew Kolb for drawing these delightful illustrations. I took them from his website, and hope he doesn't mind me spicing it up. A very talented artist! Check out more of his amazing work at www.kolbisneat.com

Also thanks to David Bowie for his fantastic musical career. 35+ years of inspiring people all over the world. if you don't own this song yet, check out:

I do not own the rights/ have permission to use this copywritten song. I also have no legal right to use Kolb's artwork, and he did not help me in any way besides drawing these for his personal use. I took his art and digitally cut it apart from the PDF on his website. That being said, This is a non-profit project

After seeing Kolb's "Space Book" on his site a month or so ago, I emailed him and asked if I could animate his art. I had just finished up a free-lance position, and didn't want my skills to get dull; being a Bowie fan all my life, his art really excited me.

So here you have it; My contribution to the Major Tom Phenomena. Thanks again to Andrew Kolb for the art.

Eu estava lá. Tinha dezassete anos, achava que sabia tudo e não sabia nada. Mas soube estar lá. Valha-me isso como memória.
