Driving to work today, David Bowie on Q107 – Let’s Dance – and I’m really getting into it. I’m listening to the crazy horn intro, thinking about his incredible voice and what it means to completely give yourself to your art. I’m just finishing Brian Eno’s “A Year With Swollen Appendices” (in which Bowie appears frequently), so my mind is hovering in a “big ideas” place.
The chorus comes on: “… and if you say run … I’ll run with you …”
… and I just burst into tears – suddenly overcome with a little jealousy for the lucky one Bowie’s primed to run with; his 1983 muse I suppose.
God I’m a lunatic. These must be *those* pregnancy hormones finally making an appearance…
