Ashes to Ashes
David Bowie Lyrics


Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song?
I've heard a rumor from Ground Control
Oh no, don't say it's true

They got a message from the Action Man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed, love
Sordid details following"
The shrieking of nothing is killing, just
Pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to kick but the planet it's glowing

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too"
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I never done good things (I never done good things)
I never done bad things (I never done bad things)
I never did anything out of the blue, woh-o-oh
Want an axe to break the ice
Wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

My mother said, to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mother said, to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mother said, to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mother said, to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

There will never be another David Bowie. Such an amazingly unique and talented artist. 🌠

True of some big names, they were unique (of course some depends on your musical tastes) But Bowie, Lemmy, Mercury, Hendrix, Moon could never be replaced. Lemmy had a unique style of bass playing and Keith Moon behind the drums was a wild thing. There's a German lass who plays drum covers , Sina, who said Moon basically played a series of drum solos to make the drums an integral part of the track as opposed to a time keeper.

yes no maby

Tyler the creator is a fractel of bowie has the same magik just reflected in a difernt time
