GIVEAWAY: Schooled by Bowie

Posted by 33 on

Bowie…what can we say that hasn’t been said about him? He’s a legend. My earliest memory of him wasn’t hearing one of his songs on the radio, but seeing his music videos. I don’t even know which one came first. Was it “Modern Love,” “China Girl,” “Let’s Dance” or “Dancing in the Streets” with Mick Jagger? I know, I know. Some people would consider that Bowie era their least favorite, but not me.

I was hooked. He was among a handful or so of other musical artists who I really admired when I was going through my teenage years.

After seeing those first videos, I just wanted more. And with each old or new video I came across, from “Ashes to Ashes” to “Under Pressure,” Bowie really taught me so much about the world through his music and his ever-changing persona, even if I didn’t realize it at the time.

  • Adaptability! the way he could and still does, skate between collaborations ranging from Iggy Pop, John Lennon, Tina Turner, Jagger…and my favorite one of all…Bing Crosby. what i love about the Little Drummer Boy classic is the way he weaves the importance of being a parent into the little story before the song.

  • To go for it if there’s something you really want. That if you’re really interested and passionate about achieving something, you can overcome the obstacles and do it. Exactly 7 months ago today I finally became a mom – a single mom by choice. And I couldn’t be more proud of it! <3

    "Sometimes I cried my heart to sleep
    Shuffling days and lonesome nights
    Sometimes my courage fell to my feet
    Lucky old sun is in my sky
    Nothing prepared me for your smile
    Lighting the darkness of my soul
    Innocence in your arms"
