The Daily Bowie #54 - "5:15 The Angels Have Gone"


The Daily Bowie #54 - "5:15 The Angels Have Gone"

Why did I think I could do TWO daily blog features when I can barely do one?

So here we are again with The Daily Bowie that is no longer daily. Two days since the last post.

DAVID BOWIE

Heathen - WIKI

FROM PUSHING AHEAD OF THE DAME: "5:15 The Angels Have Gone":

“5:15 The Angels Have Gone” is also a curtain-raiser for “Heathen”: it’s a world deserted by God, or at least a world whose inhabitants have gotten rather sick of Him. “A man who could once see his angels—hopes and aspirations, maybe?—can’t see them anymore,” Bowie described the song to Billboard in 2002, “and he blames the crushing dumbness of life for it.”

"5:15 The Angels Have Gone"
5:15
I'm changing trains
This little town
Let me down
This foreign rain
Brings me down

5:15
Train overdue
Angels have gone
No ticket
I'm jumping tracks
I'm changing towns
We never talk anymore
Forever I will adore you

5:15
All of my life
Angels have gone
I'm changing trains
Angels like them
Thin on the ground
All of my life
All legs and wings
Strange sandy eyes

5:15
Train overdue
Angels have gone
We never talk anymore
Forever I will adore you
Cold station
All of my life

NOTE ON WHY THE DAILY BOWIE IS NO LONGER DAILY: For 53 days, I completed daily Bowie posts. My schedule is too demanding to make a post every day, so this will now be a feature that is called The Daily Bowie, but it will not be daily. I will post as I can. I will post often. But if I miss a day, I will skip it. Otherwise, I get in the position of making five Bowie posts all in one day, and that's a lot of Bowie for people to swallow all at once... (yeah, leaving that badly phrased, innuendo packed statement. I bet Bowie would have laughed at it).
