The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return
– “Nature Boy”
To be honest, I was never a particularly big Bowie fan – nothing against him. I just had a deprived upbringing, really. From what little exposure I did have to the music icon, I was impressed by his vivacity and his concomitant kinkiness. His voice, his overall style – he seemed larger than life. And maybe I’m just jumping on the popular grief bandwagon, but I do have respect for someone who has inspired so many people (even though he was far from perfect). So I’d be remiss if I didn’t dedicate this Saturday Songbird to the man.
RIP Mr. Bowie. You are now and forever will be Stardust.
Ground control to Major Tom… Join us each week for a new Saturday Songbird!
