The Daily Bowie #49 - "Stay"

Bowie - Leaf Gardens, Toronto, Feb 26 1976
The Daily Bowie #49 - "Stay"

"Heartwrecker, heartwrecker, make me delight..."


I love the Internet. I do not look for videos before I choose these songs. I look for videos after I choose the songs, and I am always finding hidden gems. Here's a performance of "Stay" from German TV with Adrian Belew on guitar from 1978. Amazing!

Apparently, this song was originally recorded in what Carlos Alomar described as a "cocaine frenzy."

In that case, I would think the song would be called "GO!" not "Stay."

This is all you get today, as the song and video speaks volumes, though read the links, especially, as always, the PUSHING AHEAD OF THE DAME page.

"Stay" - STATION TO STATION - 1976


This week dragged past me so slowly
The days fell on their knees
Maybe I'll take something to help me
Hope someone takes after me
I guess there's always some change in the weather
This time I know we could get it together
If I did casually mention tonight
That would be crazy tonight

Stay, that's what I meant to say or do something
But I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants something you want too

Heartwrecker, heartwrecker, make me delight
Life is so vague when it brings someone new
This time tomorrow I'll know what to do
I know it's happened to you

Stay, that's what I meant to say or do something
But what I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants so much to stay
That's what I meant to say or do something
But what I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants something you want too

Rest in peace, David. We miss you.
