Happy New Year Good People,
I tried to record this early January 2018 but to be honest I was having a hard time getting a flow for this playlist. One of my Brothers in Podcasting, Todd Kelley, taught me over a decade ago you have to make sure you have a strong opening and closer when it comes to music podcasting so I went through several tunes to be the opening because for me when it comes to David Bowie this gentleman has many great tunes and to intertwine the Talking Heads was harder than I participated. I was going to scrap the podcast but what always helps me is when my body is in motion so I will go for a walk and the idea will flow. So what better song to start off the show is “Under Pressure”.
If you haven’t checked out “David Bowie: The Last Five Years” on HBO I recommend it. Although he was sick he wanted to make sure he finished his music projects before he succumbed to cancer. I have to admit I don’t have music from his last two albums but I will make it my mission to buy his “The Next Day” and “Blackstar” albums and have them in future shows.
The music of the Talking Heads for me has always been quirky and yet ahead of its time. Their music and videos were creative and takes me down memory lane coming up in the 80s. Their music went down different roads and it was alright by me because my taste has always been eclectic. For me it was to groups in the 80s that quit at the height of popularity…The Police and Talking Heads.
I hope you enjoy the tunes.
Have a Blessed/Safe/Productive day everyone.
