It's No Game
David Bowie Lyrics


Shiruetto ya kage ga kakumei o miteiru
Mo tengoku no giyu no kaidan wa nai

Silhouettes and shadows
Watch the revolution
No more free steps to heaven
It's no game

Ore genjitsu kara shime dasare
Nani ga okkote irunoka wakara nai
Doko ni kyokun wa arunoka
Hitobito wa yubi o orareteiru
Konna dokusaisha ni iyashime rareru nowa kanashii

I am bored from the event
I really don't understand the situation
And it's no game

Documentaries on refugees
Couples 'gainst the target
You throw a rock against the road
And it breaks into pieces
Draw the blinds on yesterday
And it's all so much scarier
Put a bullet in my brain
And it makes all the papers to

Nammin no kiroku eiga
Hyoteki o se ni shita koibito tachi
Michi ni ishi o nage reba
Kona gona ni kudake
Kino ni huta o sureba
Kyohu wa masu
Ore no atama ni tama o buchi kome ba
Shinbun wa kaki tateru

So where's the moral
When people have their fingers broken
To be insulted by these fascists
It's so degrading
And it's no game

Shut up!
Shut up!

2nd place - intro track on Radiohead's 'OK Computer' album. Quite simply wow. The opening track alone blows you away. This album is something else.

3rd place - "Zooropa' from U2's Zooropa album. Their most misunderstood, but imo best album.

4th - 'Astrodyne' from Ultravox's 'Vienna' album - synth pop masterpiece oozing style and class, aswell as Midge Ure's soaring vocals, and
5th - 'As one' from Suede's 'The Blue Hour' album. It sets the tone for a disturbing yet grippingly dark album. Best album of 2018 by miles.

All very different albums, but where the opening track of each grabs hold of you and takes you on a journey.

david bowie yelling as his favorite anime plays in the background

@theemacsshibe Even worse.

So many responses are from people who weren't even remotely alive when David Bowie was here on Earth. Take your anime as your enema and keep it plugged up.

Oh, please..


Yes, I badly want to overdub explosion noises. The Flaming Lips borrowed this for Yoshime SO hard.

how is this not a mainstay in every collection? It's punk, it's theatre, it's rock and roll that's abrasive and amazing
it's like drunken burlesque

I read that as drunken bbq.

@plasticwrap well obviously a lot of people thought so!! It’s just not for me..commercial Bowie just doesn’t float my boat. Our paths divided at that point...not to return until the ‘next day’. I will say tho, retrospectively, that while I held the view, up until only fairly recently, that Bowie’s last great album ( before his big comeback in 2014, and long, long before I knew that we had been friends, didn’t know that until 18 months after his death) was Heroes, these days my absolute favourite is Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)’s a f*cken banger of an album..and just possibly the most iconic and authentic..David Jones deconstructing David Bowie and the ‘what the hell just happened’ ‘70’s. It makes me laugh almost as much as Eno’s Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy makes me laugh, and that’s something, because that particular album sits at the pinnacle of my very-favourite-record-ever-made teepee.


@Virginia viola Modern Love is a great song.
