Spring is Here – Yeah…!

a Sisbro Studio Production

 

 

I’ve chosen to celebrate with a rumbustious late medieval – early renaissance song, “Ecco la Primavera” (Spring has come apace) by the Italian composer Francesco Landini,
performed here by the hungarian multi-instrumentalist Arany Zoltán.

Spring Has Come Apace

 

 

Spring is coming and it promises new growth among established glories blooming once more. As this month’s entry on Music Passion must include spring in either the title or lyric, I chose “Wild Is The Wind” because it serves a double purpose. The song is a soundtrack made for a life-long, passionate love affair. and serves the purpose of this posts main content quite admirably. Last month David bowie released a video (see below) from his first album in 10 years. This month the entire thing is available on Itunes and is due out in stores shortly. But that’s not all. Also opening in London on March 23rd at the Victoria and Albert Museum is the the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie.

This month the theme is spring – regardless of the fact that the lot of us in the southern hemisphere are moving in to autumn and winter ;-)

So, here’s my contribution to this month’s theme – hope you enjoy!

You Must Believe In Spring

Music Passion- Moonage Day Dreams

Let’s all hear Moonage Day Dream of David Bowie. An entry by our new Music Passion player Leiulf of About Sound and Vision. Come on guys, let’s all check it out!

About Sound and Vision

I was recently visited by adollyciousirony who has an interesting music related blog. This month’s topic is about songs with “MOON” in the title. When I think Moon song, I think David Bowie. Space Oddity was actually played during the Moon Landing on both the BBC and CBS. “Moonage Daydream” from Ziggy Stardust certainly qualifies for this list. I deem it essential. You can choose from the milder studio version:

The wilder live version from “Ziggy Stardust The Motion Picture”:

Or, better yet, the live version from David’s 50th Birthday Bash at Madison Square Garden’s in New York. Earlier, I did a post on the 1996 Lorelie Festival, which I called “Bowie’s finest moment on stage”. I was referring to the entire 1995-1997, near non-stop tour with Reeves Gabrels and company. This band was soooo hot that David actually abandoned plans to release the other 2 parts to Outside…
