    Totally useless fact:
    David Bowie's eyes were NOT different colours. he had a condition (anisocoria) in which one of his pupils was permanently dilated, but the irises were actually the same colour...

    Totally useless fact and unpopular opinion:
    "Earthling" was his 3rd best album.

    What’s your favourite self isolation song?

    I keep coming back to this hit from 1986.

    London is a cacophony. I can now hear silence. Train lines swing through. Bird songs a singing. Mala and mantra.

    Home is where I want to be
    Pick me up and turn me around

    I feel numb, born with a weak heart
    I guess I must be having fun
    The less we say about it the better
    Make it up as we go along

    Feet on the ground, head in the sky
    It's okay, I know nothing's wrong, nothing
    Oh! I got plenty of time
    Oh! You got light in your eyes
    And you're standing here beside me
    I love the passing of time
    Never for money, always for love
    Cover up and say goodnight, say goodnight
    Home, is where I want to be
    But I guess I'm already there

    I come home, she lifted up her wings
    I guess that this must be the place
    I can't tell one from the other
    I find you, or you find me?

    There was a time before we were born
    If someone asks, this is where I'll be, where I'll be oh!
    We drift in and out
    Oh! Sing into my mouth
    Out of all those kinds of people
    You got a face with a view
    I'm just an animal looking for a home and
    Share the same space for a minute or two
    And you love me till my heart stops
    Love me till I'm dead
    Eyes that light up
    Eyes look through you
    Cover up the blank spots
    Hit me on the head I got ooh!

    Think...
    Home=Nirvana is where I want to be, but I guess I'm already there..= Samsara is Nirvana... Nirvana is Samsara...

    Amazing what a little bit of creative imagination can do...

    You might enjoy this, it’s a dutch song by a man named Ramses Shaffy, which enjoins the listener to “sing, fight, cry, laugh, work and admire”. He was a well-known performer in the 70’s, and I met him once when I was young.

    I've discovered Shostakovich this week and his preludes and fugues are occupying my listening time.

    Especially this verse:

    The way I see it, you're probably freest from the ages one to four
    Around the age of five you're shipped away for your body to be stored
    They promise education, but really they give you tests and scores
    And they predictin' prison population by who scoring the lowest
    And usually the lowest scores the poorest and they look like me
    And every day on evening news they feed you fear for free
    And you so numb you watch the cops choke out a man like me
    And 'til my voice goes from a shriek to whisper, "I can't breathe"
    And you sit there in the house on couch and watch it on TV
    The most you give's a Twitter rant and call it a tragedy
    But truly the travesty, you've been robbed of your empathy
    Replaced it with apathy, I wish I could magically
    Fast forward the future so then you can face it
    And see how fucked up it'll be
    I promise I'm honest, they coming for you
    The day after they comin' for me
    I'm readin' Chomsky, I read Bukowski
    I'm layin' low for a week
    I said somethin' on behalf of my people
    And I popped up in Wikileaks
    Thank God that I'm covered, the devil is smothered
    And you know the evil don't sleep
    Dick Gregory told me a couple of secrets before he laid down in his grave
    All of us serve the same masters, all of us nothin' but slaves
    Never forget in the story of Jesus, the hero was killed by the state

    Thanks @Jason for the lyrics.

    As you know I find your music taste disquieting ... and yet I am quite happy with the discordant din of Tibetan Temple 'musac'.

    I clearly am biased. :3

    It's a Khene...a traditional Laotian mouth organ

  • @federica @Shoshin

    A Khene is used in Laos, Eastern Thailand (Isan region) originally used for their local folk music... which includes the genre molam. In the 70s, technology came and created very curious pieces.

    One of my favourite songs....

    "The young girl from Makaleng"

    Glad it's used vertically, and not horizontally. One must be grateful for small mercies. Rather than big mouths!

    It actually sounds lovely... thanks for the clarifications. Now I know what I just listened to - !

  • ToshTosh Veteran

    The soundtrack to the film The Wanderers. It's pure USA 1960s, but class.

    I rarely listen to music; I have very little 'soul', or inner peace - mindfulness - to stick with it.
