We are all Stardust Today



I am so sad today. David Bowie has passed away at the not-so-old age of 69 years. We listen to him a lot at Casa de Noodles. His music transcends its time and is as relevant today as it was when he first shared "A Space Oddity" in 1969.

His career, which spanned the years from 1967-2016, was always inventive and unexpected.

So, I am substituting my planned post for today to honor the man who brought so much to the world - R.I.P. David Bowie.





"Space Oddity"


Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills 
and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, 
engines on
Check ignition 
and may God's love be with you

[spoken]
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff

This is Ground Control 
to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule 
if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating 
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past 
one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much 
she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead,
there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you....

Here am I floating 
round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do.

Mom and her copilot used to sing that song in the cockpit more than once. She grew up with his music, though she was pretty little when he first came on the scene. She always admired his creativity and his devotion to his wife Iman. He will be sorely missed.
