Somebody Up There Likes Me

14 Jan


Iman posted this to her Instagram account on January 10, the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s passing. What a fantastic double rainbow shot, and love the dramatic lighting. Good capture. Wonder if she shot it herself, from the balcony of where they live in Soho? It’s a feel-good, hopeful photo.

Somebody Up There Likes Me lyrics by David Bowie

He’s so divine, his soul shines.
Breaks the night, sleep tight.
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race.
He says, “I’m somebody.”
He’s got his eye on your soul, his hand on your heart.

Somebody up there (somebody) likes me.
Nothing left his eye unmoved. He
Had the plan, he had to use (somebody).
He’s so divine, his soul shines (somebody).
Breaks the night, sleep tight (somebody out there, somebody).
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race (somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody out there).

We Move Like Tigers

23 May


We can’t dance. We don’t talk much.
We just ball and play,
But then we move like tigers on Vaseline.

Song Hang On To Yourself by David Bowie.

New Love

22 Mar

Their first public appearance! David Bowie and Iman at the “7th on Sale” Benefit at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City in 1990.

New love – a boy and girl are talking.
New words – that only they can share in.
New words – a love so strong it tears their hearts
To sleep – through the fleeting hours of morning.

Song Soul Love by David Bowie.

This shot was taken while they were dating. They were married on June 6, 1992. 

Your Face…

Your face, your race, the way that you talk—
I kiss you, you’re beautiful, I want you to walk.

Song Five Years by David Bowie

Still feeling pain about DB’s death. 

I think that David Bowie chose “not-his-usual” musicians to perform on Blackstar because if he used his usual musicians, they would have instinctively known what was going on with his health because of their years of history of performing with him. It might have been too heavy for them to deal with and contain.

Tribute To Iman

29 Jan


I took David Bowie for granted.

When I received an early morning phone call from my sister telling me he had died, I felt distraught and started to cry after we hung up. My sister and I are still upset about his passing. I have read that people are upset about his passing, as if he was a family member. The way I am upset about him is not an experience I have had before.

When I come home from work and finish making dinner, some nights it’s soothing for me to read all I can about him on the Internet, and watch videos of TV shows he was on, or snippets from movies he was in. It’s how I’m mourning him. From watching various videos, I realized how sexy he was.

One of the best articles about David Bowie is from Spin Magazine: The 100 Greatest David Bowie Moments. You have to look at ALL the videos!

I have always loved how Bowie looked, dressed, his music and creativity. I love all the layers and levels of his voice. I hadn’t ever really thought much about how sexy he was, because I took him for granted. But now that he’s gone and I have been studying him in his videos, he OOZES sexiness, charm, humor, and diplomacy. I would see how he must have been irresistible!

And now for my tribute to Iman:

Iman was and is one of the most beautiful women in the world, don’t you think? Notwithstanding all of her important and amazing qualities and contributions, she is the woman who had sex more times with David Bowie than anyone else. She is sooooooo lucky, don’t you think? Another factor of their relationship is they had a monogamous marriage; they were completely sexually dedicated to each other. I love that. She probably would not have settled for any other kind of arrangement in their 2002 marriage, and he had already been through an “open” first marriage, so he knew the negative complexities of doing that again. Bowie chose the song Evening Gathering for his bride’s entrance at their wedding.

In a 2013 interview with Naomi Campbell, Iman said, “You’ve got to feel hot for each other and respect each other. That’s where it starts.” I can SO see their hotness for each other, can’t you? 

If Iman wrote a book, I’ll bet she could get $30 million dollars for her memoirs! But this probably won’t happen because of how private she and Mr. Bowie were.

David Bowie and Iman oozed love.

David Bowie: The Picasso of Rock and Roll

Hard to imagine how Iman and Lexi are coping. They can feel our love though.

And, David Bowie’s son Duncan tweeted a telling blog post written by Dr. Mark Taubert, a palliative care doctor. Read it here.

  • I am hoping that some videos were made of David Bowie while he was recording Blackstar.
  • The exemplary music of Blackstar was made by a creative genius who was 69-years-young. What other musicians of this age have made such a successful collection of music? 
  • The Blackstar album is a million times more meaningful than other CDs because it was David Bowie’s goodbye message to his fans!
