UNDER THE RADAR: David Bowie – “I Can’t Give Everything Away”


UNDER THE RADAR: David Bowie – “I Can’t Give Everything Away”.

The mesmerizing, “positive” lyric video for David Bowie’s “I Can’t Give Everything Away” has been unveiled. The video was created by artist Jonathan Barnbrook, whose unique iconography and typeface are seen throughout the artwork of Bowie’s ★ (pronounced Blackstar).

“This is really a very simple little video that I wanted to be ultimately positive,” Barnbrook said in a statement. “We start off in black and white world of ★, but in the final chorus we move to brilliant color, I saw it as a celebration of David, to say that despite the adversity we face, the difficult things that happen such as David’s passing, that human beings are naturally positive, they look forward and can take the good from the past and use it as something to help with the present. We are a naturally optimistic species and we celebrate the good that we are given.”

Although I can easily think of better circumstances for its recent unveiling, at long last a much bootlegged (audio only) and highly emotional performance by David Bowie of John Lennon’s “Imagine” on December 8th, 1983—the third anniversary of the Beatle’s murder—at the Hong Kong Coliseum has surfaced on YouTube.

So long, Star Man


David Bowie


So long, Star Man.

No rock star was more forward-looking or incorporated so many different cultural streams; it shouldn’t be surprising that his influence and resonance have only increased over the years. He was a cultural vampire, in the best sense; he took from everybody and he never aged.
