David Bowie, “Lazarus”

I saw a little bit of HBO’s documentary “David Bowie: The Last Five Years" last week. After listening to some musicians talking about how they worked with David on his last album “Blackstar," I’ve become very interested in it. Later I borrowed a copy from our local library and listened to it with amazement and delight.  It’s been quite a while since the last time I listened to an entire album so attentively.  God knows how rare this is in the modern time. 
 The single “Lazarus" is my favourite, and it catches my imagination right from the beginning. Perhaps that’s because he was really in his last days when he was filming the video. The documentary mentioned David’s idea about the music video and how the director tried to execute the idea, and then, the result is here.  Watching the video two years from his death now really makes me wonder how he felt, what he was actually thinking when he was lying  in that bed, playing that character “Button Eye." Now we will never know. He has gone back to the Blackstar. But surely his music will remain on Earth, being the proof of his stay.

David Bowie, “Lazarus” 有 “ 2 則迴響 ”

  1. 有時候我想著,前輩留給這個世界的好多,透過音樂,他們要傳達的更多,我們每次的解讀都是細剖他們的感情和傳遞。 還有他們對生命的認識。
    兩年了,好快。

    1. 你形容得真好~他在最後的年月裡,沒有接受什麼媒體的訪問,似乎只想安靜。對合作的伙伴談到自己,都是淡淡地提一下他生病了,或許來日無多。對於一個擅長在舞台上創造多種可能身份的藝人,作品裡有多少的自己和多少的理想化的其他身份,或許只有他自己才知道。但留下來的音樂,是他想讓後人紀念他和認識他的方式。也許這就是他想留下來的。
